More than ever I feel the need of having Thee close to me.
“My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” I will all the more gladly boast of my weaknesses, that the power of Christ may rest upon me. For the sake of Christ, then, I am content with weaknesses, insults, hardships, persecutions, and calamities; for when I am weak, then I am strong.

The nun that said "No" to the Pope
In the aftermath of Mary Johnson's piece about obedient mindless nuns (those who wear the habit and lead a life according to their vows), we have an outspoken nun who is now a Saint - Sister Angela Merici.
Saint Angela, you were not afraid of change. You did not let stereotypes keep you from serving. Help us to overcome our fear of change in order to follow God's call and allow others to follow theirs. Amen
