As we enter the second week of Advent – the opening season of the Church Year, here is what St. Julie wished the sisters all those years ago:
It’s a good time to think of the blessings you would most like to receive; the things that would be good for your spiritual life and health.
Would they include:
- more time
- a clearer sense of priorities
- the ability to cope with disappointments
- the willingness to see mistakes as things which help us to learn and develop
- more smiles given and received?
Whatever we hope for, the challenge is then to do what we can to shower similar blessings on those around us.
St. Julie: pray for us, protect us and bless us.
