For many of you who are new to my news/notes, I usually include a personal reflection. This week, I’m choosing to include the following from Sister Joan Chittister, OSB, who seems to encapsulate what the Mission of Hope is “doing” and who we “are”… as well as who we are called to be.
“In the spiritual life, we are meant to prod our souls to regular discipline, only so, that in doing so, our hearts will be softened to serve those whom Jesus served.” (Joan Chittister)
Or as Scripture says, “Rend your hearts, not your garments”. Joel 2:13
My thought: Our actions must reflect who we say we are!
