Feast of the Annunciation
March 25, 2017
As we commemorate this Feast of the Annunciation, Mary’s yes, we realize that God was at the mercy of human freedom, asking Mary to carry God’s son. She responded for all of us, “Here I am, your servant. May your kingdom come through me.” Mary learned that being Godlike called for nothing more than allowing love to flow through her.
We pray: Faithful God, we pray to join Mary in hearing your invitation, offering ourselves, and learning to recognize the promise fulfilled. Blessed Mary, God’s Mother, pray for us that we may follow your example. Amen. Adapted from Will You? By Mary McGlone, CSJ

Filming Continues on
Blandina Television Series
Filming on the television series “At the End of the Santa Fe Trail” – based on the life of Sister of Charity of Cincinnati Blandina Segale - continues in Colorado. S. Carol Marie Power had the opportunity to visit the set this past weekend and meet with cast members and crew.
Following their Thursday morning history session with S. Judith Metz, Novice Romina Sapinoso and Novice Director S. Donna Steffen - accompanied by Sisters Judy, Janice Ernst and Mary Barbara Philippart - ended the lesson with lunch at Arnold's Bar and Grill, built in the 1830s. Located just blocks from the former site of Good Samaritan Hospital at 6th and Lock streets, there are stories that S. Anthony O'Connell spent time in and around Arnold's in hopes of receiving liquor to use for hospital patients.

Spring Has Arrived!
Daylight has stepped out of darkness
Barren branches hold green and new buds
We recognize warming temperatures
Creatures are singing their songs
Spring has come.
What is God’s message to us?
Be sensitive to the rhythms of the seasons
Count on My grace
You are connected to all the goodness that exists.
Feast of St. Joseph – March 19
Joseph had God’s son in his care which suggests that he too would look after his Church. Joseph’s feast should challenge us to make our prayer share in the vison of Christ, a bond of love strengthened by faith. May St. Joseph know what is most needed for our Church today, be it:
Gratitude for the four years of Pope Francis’ leadership;
The need for compassion for those most misunderstood;
An attitude of openness to truth among the clergy and faithful;
An appreciation of the Holy Spirit’s role in our day-to-day lives;
Growth in our identity and mission as Christ’s disciples;
A universal call to mutuality and service;
A desire to engage with the world to save the Earth.
