Prioress Message


A CHILD IS BORN, WE CALL HIM WONDER COUNSELOR.

Please click here for the Liturgy schedule.

In a world of daily bad news and hatred, I find consolation in an innocent child who reminds me what is important in life.  Innocence has a way of softening our hearts and reminding us of our vulnerability, like the smell of a new baby’s skin.  Yet, we seem to live in the reality of the harshness of life.  Our God calls us to a different existence.

How can we become innocent and vulnerable in this harsh life?  Is there any room for this kind of reality? I am able to enter into this humble stance through my own suffering or the suffering of another.  When I become the beggar, the broken, or the hungry, then my soul is more open to the possibilities. When I am desperate for consolation and my heart experiences the tender touch of gratitude; then I rediscover my humanity and vulnerability.

May this Christmas season find us open to our deepest vulnerabilities, longings, and moments of gratitude so we can celebrate the innocence of Christ and those around us.
