Year of Consecrated Life – Part 2

As I considered my offering for the blog this month, I also have been pondering this beginning of the Year of Consecrated Life.  Looking at the blog for this month, I was grateful to see Kathy Flynn, second year novice, has also written about it.  So I follow in her blessed footsteps.

Because of an event that I will be leading for the religious of the Diocese of Palm Beach for this special year, I have been reading the documents related to it.  But for this gathering I have also taken time to look at the mission statements for all the congregations represented where I minister.

Each congregation of Sisters has its own way of expressing who they are and how they desire live God’s mission in the world.  The process of collecting and reading each of these has truly touched my heart.  It also caused me ponder again the mission statement of my congregation:

             We are Catholic Sisters proclaiming the Gospel through preaching and teaching
             to help build a holy and just Church and Society.

What touches your heart as you read our mission statement?  Have you considered Kathy Flynn’s invitation to seek out Religious and get to know us and our lives?
