Lighting the Way!
Let us love one another and be glad in the rich graces of this holy season of love. -Cornelia Connelly, Foundress of the Society of the Holy Child Jesus
December Meditation Reflection Questions:
Where in your life are you feeling a sense of waiting?
What makes us ready to be open to discovering the Word?
1.Where do you find God during your vacation- in the ocean, backyard, in
the mountains or?
2. Vacation helps us be grateful for all God's gifts, and to know God and
ourselves better. In what way have you come to know God more and yourself ? What will
you do with these new insights?
Alleluia! Christ is risen! Easter reminds us of God's unending and powerful love. It is amazing what God's power can do in our lives, especially in the places where we are struggling the most. As you watch our meditation for April, consider this: What are the failed places in my life? In those I love? In our world? For what newness do I long? How can God's love flow and surge into those areas of your life? Share your thoughts below and sign up here to have our meditations delivered to your inbox once a month.
No one is a stranger to suffering. It is a part of life. Our suffering often helps us to grow and see the world in a different light, but that doesn't necessarily make it easy. Where is God within our suffering? When you find yourself struggling, do you turn to God or do you turn away in frustration, hurt, or anger? As we watch our meditation for March during this Lenten season, let us ponder and ask ourselves: Is Lent a time for suffering, awakening, or both? Do I turn to God in times of struggle? How do I accompany and support others through their struggles? We invite you to share your responses below.
With Valentine's Day being marked on February 14, this month often makes us think of love. But what is love? Is it the euphoria you feel when you first start "falling" for someone? Is it about being accepted or appreciated? What makes love so special? Why is it important? As you watch our meditation consider the following: Where do you hear God's call and challenge to grow in love? How will you respond? How are you a loving person? Share your thoughts in our comments section below. And, Happy Valentine's Day to you and your loved ones! As Cornelia Connelly, our Foundress said, "Love in strength, rather than too much sweetness."
