PENTECOST: A SPECIAL ANNIVERSARY
Today is a special day of celebration for me, not only because it is Pentecost, but because it is the anniversary of my lifetime Oblature with the Community of St. John.
Six years ago today, I made my promises to the Lord with the Community of St. John.
Today, I thank God for the outpouring of graces He gave me through the Holy Spirit, to do this. What a beautiful gift!
I didn’t deserve this gift, but God, in His loving kindness, generously rewarded me. As I began to lose members of my own family through illness and death, He gave me a new family, whose hearts were so full of love.
I will be forever grateful for His gift to me.
