God suffers in us

Dear friends,

There are so many things that we could put on this blog. Pictures of the renovations of the children's home building, lent reflections, or Catholic School reports. We might as well post what's really on our minds.

Sr. Mary Michael's brother, Raymond, and his family, have become a large part of our family. We've all adopted them. Now Ray is suffering in ICU with some complications. He's on a ventilator. It's interesting that this is happening during Lent. As he lays there suffering, one cannot but think of him sharing in the sufferings of Christ. The family watching him are sharing in the sufferings of Mary and John at the foot of the cross.

When something like this happens, it's amazing how things we thought were so important are not important anymore. Something to reflect on.

Remember, we're human beings, not human doings. Go home and love your family today.
