Hello again wonderful friends and supporters!
Every time I think I cannot be more overwhelmed by the generosity of others, I am proven wrong! I first posted this site just a week ago this evening and look what the Lord has alread done through you! It's incredible to see and I hope you do not get tired of hearing me say that I thank you from the bottom of my heart because I do. Thank you for your donations, your prayers and for spreading the word. It's all just so good and I wish I could thank each of you in person. In lieu of that I offer my rosaries, holy hours and other prayers for you all daily.
Today is a special day as well because it is the anniversary of the death of Mother Mary Alphonsa (Rose Hawthorne), the foundress of the community I am entering. To celebrate I wanted to share this beautiful blog entry with you, which one of the Dominican brothers assigned to Hawthorne on ministry wrote about the Sisters: http://www.dominicanablog.com/2013/06/28/how-to-live-at-hawthorne/
and one of her many wonderful quotes:
"It will be our aim to forget ourselves and our finite life of work in our Lord and the spiritual quality of our work, which we are taught is heavenly in so far as it is honestly done. So that you and I may find that our life is radiantly beautiful, in not being ours, but the life of Him we desire to be, at whatever cost to our will and ease."
Peace and good to you,
