Cornelia Connelly and the Church Year

Sr. Jeanne - June 01, 2016

Every year the feasts of Pentecost, the Blessed Trinity, and Corpus Christi, and the Sacred Heart arrive on the calendar very near to Commencement, week after week. I noticed that fact many, many years ago when I was a student myself. Those feast days were a sign summer was close at last! Then as a young Religion teacher, I missed the chance to talk with students about these feasts since they were either gone or on the way out. If still there due to an early Easter, they were not willing to humor me telling them how deeply the Spirit lived within them and how amazing – to believe in one God with three natures, yet united and connected as one Love.

Spring Colors Prayer

Sr. Jeanne - April 06, 2016

We welcome this coming of spring time together. It is God’s gift to us. With joy, anxiety, with personal hope and needs, with the pressures of working in or attending college today and envisioning our future, with national and world concerns, with our longing for peace and desire for unity, we come together to share a prayer.

Reflection: Holy Week

Sr. Jeanne - March 22, 2016

Much like us who find people who believe in us when we’re in any need! So let us be with Jesus these last few days before Easter, these last few minutes before the next thing today. Listen to him say, “No one can take you out of my hand, just as no one can take me out of the Father’s hand.” Am I in his hand? How does it feel to be in the Father’s hand? Who might need my hand today? During these days let us reach out for his hand .

Cornelia Connelly and the Year of Mercy

Sr. Jeanne - March 09, 2016

Perhaps her own words offer the strongest evidence of her response to God’s mercy. These are found in her original rule of 1853. “Mysteries of the most sublime teaching are to be found in the humble, hidden life of the Holy Child Jesus, in which God manifests in a most wonderful manner the treasures of His MERCY and of His boundless love.” Another time she wrote: “Contemplating the Eternal Wisdom in the lowliness of his humanity we are to seek knowledge of our own nothingness and that of his infinite love and mercy.”
