Learn of Me

"The Lord is gracious and merciful,
slow to anger and of great kindness.
The Lord is good to all and compassionate.
The Lord is fruitful in all his words
and holy in all his works.
The Lord is near to all
who call upon him in truth.
(Ps 145)
The Society of the Sacred Heart in the United States has just had the grace of a visit from the Mother General, Clare Pratt, the first American to hold this office. She has spent more than a month with us visiting different areas with one of the Central Team, Jane Maltby.
At the beginning of Lent, Clare suggested that we take on of the few direct Gospel quotes in our Constitutions as "an invitation to which all of us, no matter what our age or situation can respond." Jesus still says to each of us: "Learn of Me, because I am gentle and humble of heart."
Am I living each day with an attitude of gentleness and humility? Am I learning from Jesus how to accept all with a gentle and humble heart? Let us pray for one another to be gentle and humble and change our world from war to peace.
