September Reflection  


“As (God) has given you this charge, so (God) will give you also the strength to be able to carry it out…”
St. Angela - Prologue to the Counsels



 We look for people who have similar interests and knowledge of the charge that we have been given. We look for people who know us; we look for people who may have resources to help us, people whose backgrounds can provide some answers or solutions.

 A source of strength we often forget or overlook is God. God may ultimately lead us to the right people who can provide us with a different perspective and a clearer outlook.

 Being open to all possibilities is being open to the spirit of God at work in us. Let us not be afraid to put our trust in God first and see where the Spirit leads.

Comfort the Sorrowful and Pray Unceasingly

In our lives sadness and sorrow, difficulty and affliction, will all come our way. It's part of being human. Mercy moves us to pay attention to those around us. Mercy moves us to reach out to people who are in need of comfort.

REFLECT:  What blessings have you seen come from suffering? As you share about this with others, take the time to consider how God brought lifer from death, love out of hate, and light out of darkness.


Treasure in the Archives



These two footstools came from Bouogue-sur-Mer, France, the original Motherhouse of the Ursulines.  who came to Cleveland in 1850.  There was no central heating in French monasteries, hence, the nuns were given special footstools to keep their feet off the cold floors.  These two foot stools were given to the nuns sent from Cleveland to make the Toledo Ursuline Foundation and were used by the superiors in the Convent on Cherry Street.
