Sisters and Associates were asked to reflect on a quote form the encyclical "Laudato Si" (On Care for Our Common Home).
March 4 - 5
“I ask you to take all your daughters into account, having each and every one deeply fixed in your hearts and minds”
St. Angela – 2nd Legacy
When we look around us, we often will find a face in the room or crowd that looks somewhat disengaged – almost lost. If this happens too often, seeing the same face with the same look, we are tempted to draw the conclusion that s/he is bored or shy or not interested.
In reality, if we ourselves would invite one such person into conversation, we might very well find that s/he is soaking in everything that is being said and is very much into what is happening. It just doesn’t show on the outside. Once we move into engaging this person, one on one, we see that there is interest and even commitment for what is occurring.
Each person has a unique way of becoming involved in something and it may not always be in a “splashy” sort of way. Some people operate with more reserve, are less demonstrative, but that doesn’t mean they aren’t listening or aren’t interested.
Caring for the individual as a unique person is one of St. Angela’s values we need to embody. “…have everyone deeply fixed in your hearts and minds.”
