Throwback Thursday

In September 1969 S. Ruth Jonas arrived in Upper Volta (formerly French West Africa) to begin a two-year study of the Mosi people. Her project, backed by the U.S. Office of Education, was referred to as “the twinned classroom approach.” In the ensuing 15 years, eight more Sisters of Charity of Cincinnati would do missionary work in one or more African countries.

Seton Hill SCs Visit Motherhouse

The Final Vow Sisters of the Korean Province of the Sisters of Charity of Seton Hill made their annual visit to the Sisters of Charity Motherhouse this week. The Seton Hill Sisters were formed from the Cincinnati Congregation in 1870 at the request of the Bishop of Pittsburgh, to serve his diocese. The Sisters enjoyed learning more about the SC Community and history on Thursday, Sept. 28 with S. Judith Metz. With the visit past friendships were renewed and new ones made.

New Dining Room Named, Dedicated

The Sisters of Charity dedicated the new, small dining room in the Motherhouse with a lunch honoring the former Vincentian Sisters of Charity on Tuesday, Sept. 27. The dining room is furnished with pieces from Villa San Bernardo, the former home of the Vincentian Sisters of Charity in Bedford, Ohio, who merged with the Sisters of Charity in 2004. The room has been named the Bedford Room, and will serve as a loving remembrance of a piece of the former VSCs’ lives.

Feast of St. Vincent DePaul
Sept. 27, 2016

Artwork by Bro. Mickey O'Neill McGrath, OSFS

“Called to bear the love of God … this divine fire … everywhere.”
We need, more than ever, the living example of St. Vincent de Paul who responded with compassion to the hungry and homeless, neglected children, elderly women and men, sick person without health care, refugees from warfare, those without hope. In these persons, Vincent saw individuals loved by God, created in God’s image and worthy of dignity and value. Vincent turned his frustration into a faith-filled desire to improve their lives.

We pray: Creating God, give us the same courage and strength to change violence into love. Grant us a tender heart filled with compassion for the distress and suffering of others, especially the most vulnerable in our world. Be with us in our service so that we become impassioned by God’s Gospel of love and mercy. Amen. Adapted from a prayer of the Sisters of Charity, St. John New Brunswick, Canada

Welcome Fall

Photo by S. Jeannette Cochran, SC

Dance with delight, O flame of autumn fire,
As the earth, spinning and leaning away from the sun,
Begins to cool from the summer heat,...
And speak to me of the promise
Hidden in this season of autumn.
For spring is seeded in this season of completion,
Just as the giant oak exists within the acorn.

Autumn fire, orange and yellow sacrament of the sun,
Light up the darkness with your danc ing.
Great is God, whose heart is the shrine,
Greater still is your unceasing love for me.
May my love enflame my every work of thanksgiving
To reflect the golden beauty of autumn.

- Autumn Equinox Fire Prayer, Edward Hayes
