Living a Discerning Life in a Complex, Harsh World
“There are basically two things that any one of us does in the face of sadness and grief. We can shut down and pretend we are not feeling this. This, of course, eats away at us over time and we end up living very distracted lives that are more and more superficial. Our other choice is we can open. Those are the two basic gestures: stand back or move into.” — From Living a Discerning Life in a Complex, Harsh World

Pray With Us

On August 15 in ordinary time, we celebrate the Assumption of Mary, taken body and soul into heaven.
 
It is not recorded in Scripture. In Scripture we learn of the death of prophets and patriarchs. In the Holy Land we visit many of these burial places. Even Jesus died and was laid in a tomb. But nowhere will you find the burial place of Mary.

I give thanks to God for his unconditional love.

Just recently, while at St. Michael's, a receptionist called me over to hear this story: "Sister, this man remembers when he got a sandwich when he needed it. He doesn't need a sandwich now, but he hasn't forgotten the love and care he received from your group at Inner City Health."
