Our 2013 ANNUAL APPEAL focuses on our Mission Statement (above) as well as our Vision Statement:
We, the Benedictine Sisters of Colorado Springs, Colorado,
are impelled by the Word of God to listen and respond to the issues of our times. Reverencing all creation, we will be radical signs of God's love and compassion and use our resources in service with all God's people especially the poor and oppressed.
Please read through our Appeal flyer and consider helping us
to continue our works with all those in need.
Please visit our Development page for more information and
to give electronically. Thank you for your support!
|We are pleased to announce that a NEW
Benet Hill Monastery website will be COMING SOON!
We look forward to a fresh, exciting, dynamic NEW
web presence and hope that you will continue to visit us often!!
THE ADVENT SEASON IS RICH WITH SYMBOLS OF HOPE
First Sunday of Advent
"They shall beat their swords into plowshares and their spears into pruning hooks."
Second Sunday of Advent
"The wolf shall be a guest of the lamb, and the leopard shall lie down with the kid."
Third Sunday of Advent
"Strengthen the hands that are feeble, make firm the knees that are weak, say to those whose hearts are frightened: Be strong, fear not!" Isaiah 35:4
Fourth Sunday of Advent
"Therefore the Lord himself will give you this sign: the virgin shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall name him Emmanuel." Isaiah 7:14
What do all of these scriptures have in common? They show us a world that is turned upside down and offer an existence where the weapons of war are turned into instruments of gardening, where natural enemies lie in full peace and trust and where the aged experience new strength and vigor. There is also the profound contradiction of a virgin with child. Each of these images pulls me into a longing for peace, safety and comfort. The only way that I know to bring this peace into my reality; is to be that place of peace with the grace of God. May each of us unite our hearts in an effort to be instruments of peace.
