August Reflection  

“Put all your zeal and strength into carrying out your duty…”
Prologue to the Legacies

St. Angela’s life teaches us that “our duty” is our ministry, not just a job. It is the attitude of service, commitment, and willingness to meet the needs of those who come before us that makes the difference. It is the time, effort and caring that goes into our planning, our projects, our lessons, our encounters that lead us to looking at what we do with new eyes.

 St. Angela also shows us by her example that what we do is secondary to the people we serve. We need to keep before us the individual persons we meet each day in various circumstances. Each person is a child of God and deserves our respect and kindness. Our way of being present is of utmost importance.

 The strength we need to move forward is always at the hand of God – ask for it when the days seem tough. We don’t have to lose our zeal or enthusiasm for life. God will provide!

 As we grow in our skills at forgiveness, we will learn to accept that people will hurt us all through life.  The key is this: forgive immediately!   Simple words of forgiveness are the best.  When you feel hurt, then pray for that person and forgive immediately. And if you have caused the hurt, ask for forgiveness.


REFLECT:  Whom have you forgiven?  Who has forgiven you?  Where has forgiveness been withheld in your life, either by you or others?

 

Treasure in the Archives

 

Traditional belief is that these are first class relics, bones from the followers of St. Ursula
when they were attacked by the Huns at the site of Cologne, Germany. The large bone is believed to be that of St. Apollinarius. These relics, authenticated in Rome in June, 1884,
were the gift of Bishop Gilmour to the Ursuline Convent of the Sacred Heart, Toledo, Ohio.
