May Reflection  

“… our acts, words and movements should be an example and a source of strength to all those who deal with us;”
Rule – Of Virginity

Many of us wear many hats and our roles often define who we are and how we act. We shift in and out of various roles sometimes within the same day. Each person we meet deserves and expects our attention and respect.

When we provide an environment that is warm, safe and comfortable, we are in essence transforming our energy into a source of strength for the other. No one said this would be easy. That’s why St. Angela reminds us to always be courteous and well-mannered, gentle and kind. She says “…let no act or gesture be unworthy of those who bear the name of servants of Jesus Christ…” Our actions and behavior should always be for the instruction and edification of those who have dealings with us.
