Monthly Reflections of God's Goodness - Archive
More than 17 years ago, the leadership of the Ohio Province asked our Sisters who assembled in our annual meeting their advice regarding the initiation of a development program. Some Sisters expressed hesitation, thinking it would "pressure" our relatives, friends, and alumni. At that time, we promised never to use pressure but to invite good women and men to be a part of our worldwide mission through their contributions. The Sisters, on their part, promised the program would always include the sharing of our spirituality. We do that through our communications, monthly reflections, videos on feast days. and our presence as appropriate.
Monthly reflections take root in Sister Mary Ann's personal prayer, awareness of a liturgical season, and major feasts. Jeanne Stephens, a long-time parish adult educator, developed the ideas. She and Sister Mary Ann continue to talk about them and each month a reflection is released at 7:30 am on the first of the month.
Each month brings a variety of responses that Sister Mary Ann and Jeanne Stephens review. We are always on the lookout for what is most helpful.
