A Stranger and You Welcomed Me –
Week 1 Lenten Reflection

Day of Prayer for Legal Protection of the Unborn

In this Season of Lent we wish to go deeper with an issue that calls for a personal and communal response. We encourage you to join us in reflecting on recent words of Pope Francis related to the challenges of contemporary immigration. From A Stranger and You Welcomed Me we will use the themes to welcome, to protect, to promote and to integrate, pondering what Jesus would do. Join us every Monday.

To Welcome: Every stranger who knocks at our door presents us with an opportunity for an encounter with Jesus Christ, who identifies with the welcomed and rejected strangers of every age (Mt. 25:35-43). May we respond with wisdom and foresight. Welcoming means offering broader options for migrants and refugees to enter destination countries safely and legally. It calls for a commitment to increase and simplify the process for granting humanitarian visas and reunifying families. Is this true for our guests coming from Central America?

MicroFinancing Partners in Africa

Day of Prayer for Legal Protection of the Unborn

S. Caroljean Willie recently returned from her trip with MicroFinancing Partners in Africa. In reflection of her travels, she says, “Each trip to Africa for me is a lesson in gratitude. I meet people each time who are living in extreme poverty yet are so grateful for the help we were able to give which has enabled them to put food on their tables and send their children to school. I return home each time with a prayer that I may learn to live with a heart filled with gratitude for the gifts I have been given and accept the responsibility that accompanies those gifts. Those living in poverty have so much to teach me if I am open to listening.”

Celebrating Black History Month -
Servant of God S. Thea Bowman, FSPA

Day of Prayer for Legal Protection of the Unborn

We acknowledge the contributions to religious life and the Church provided by Servant of God Thea Bowman, FSPA. S. Thea grew up in rural Jackson, Mississippi, and died in 1990 at the young age of 52. In 1989 S. Thea addressed the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops, challenging them on the racist attitudes in the Church. She inspired thousands of people with her words and her voice, sharing her cultural heritage and spirituality in prayer, song and preaching. She embraced Catholicism as a child, became a woman religious as an adult, in a predominating white Community, but never abandoned her ‘blackness.’ She was able to cross cultural boundaries and share her gifts while uplifting and learning the cultural gifts of others. We remain grateful for her life and her influence in the Church.

Some of the art photographed here is still on display around the Motherhouse!
