Jesus waits for us.
Jesus waits for us. He is patient. He came a helpless baby so that we might approach Him and love Him. He still needs us. We are His hands and feet now. We are the ones who must announce the Good News and do so with joy.
We are in Grand Coteau, Louisiana, this week end for a Quad Area meeting of RSCJs including some of our Associates. It is always a good week end as we spend all of Saturday letting each one share with the group how God has been acting in our lives during the past year. I find it unites us as a group and we do begin each session with prayer. We will be in the Jesuit Spirituality Center this time for our meetings, but go over to our convent for Mass on Saturday evening and there is time before for a visit to see the new school for boys and to pray in the cemetery. Grand Coteau's Academy of the Sacred Heart was founded in 1821 and is the oldest Sacred Heart school in continuous existence.
