Day of Retreat
I am making a day of retreat at St. Thomas University given by Lawrence Freeman - I am delighted to be able to be there for this anniversary which I always celebrate. Actually, I entered 64 years ago this June but final profession after a year in Rome was such a grace, especially as I had almost six months at the Trinita before the months at the Mother House.
The Pope has come out with a new message to prepare us for Lent. In it he talks about how Christ became poor to enrich us; he also speaks of the poverty that is really destitution: material, moral, and spiritual destitution are the three he explains. I will need to reread this message and pray over it. I am sorry I do not have it in front of me now. I will no doubt share it with all of you as it is something we should read and not too long.
What a wonderful life I have had and how grateful I am!!
