HHS Mandate & Other Important Things

Dear Friends,
We live in exciting times . . . .
First, the pictures above are from some of our latest activities -- the top picture is part of a family of nine that visited us as part of their vacation. One of the little ones helped us weed the rose garden -- we had a great day. In light of the recent HHS Mandate discussions, it was so refreshing to be with a family that believes in life!
Click here to read the letter written by the CMSWR in support of our bishops on this matter:
Secondly, the other pictures are from a trip to St. Louis for a CMSWR workshop. It is always a great experience to be with Sisters from all over the country who share many, many things. (The picture of Sr. Mary Ana in front of the old courthouse -- yes, she's pretending to run like the statue behind her.)
It's Spring Break for us! We're having a blast with everyone home (in between the work and prayer and rest).
As for Lent, may we all make time to reflect on what needs conversion in our lives, have the courage to ask God to help us make progress in that area, and then have the desire and drive to actually change. Lord, give us the grace to say Yes to you in new and beautiful ways! Give us true humility to be able to see ourselves as you see us. We ask this through Christ, Our Lord. Amen.
