Blessed Among Us

The Mass Booklet, "Give Us This Day" has a lovely reflection on Mother Janet Erskine Stuart, RSCJ under the title of "Blessed Among Us". I would like to include her quotes here for us to think about. She said, speaking about education as "fitting citizens for the Kingdom of Heaven" that "I would not have minded what I taught, as long as I could have caught someone and taught them something." She reminded her sisters, "It is not so much what we say or do that educates; what really educates is who we are."
She also said: "Remember that the source of happiness is within ourselves. Nothing outside can give it, even if you make your circumstances ideal. Nothing can take it away." Janet died on October 21, 1914, at the age of fifty-six. "Your life is a sacred journey. It is about change, growth, discovery, movement and transformation....It is continuously expanding your vision of what is possible stretching your soul. teaching you to see clearly an deeply, helping you to listen to your intuition."
