"May almighty God bless you. May God look upon you with mercy and give you peace..."-Blessing of St. Clare

A message from our Abbess…

Easter 2019

Dear Friends

Gaze upon him, consider him, contemplate him, longing to imitate him...St. Clare

Alleluia! The Lord is risen! As we hear the Gospel readings on Easter and throughout the following days, we realize how much we are like Jesus' early followers. We seek him and we want to see him. Like them, we don't always recognize him when he comes to us.

Jesus' eyes are wide open on the San Damiano cross in our chapel as he looks at us with love. His eyes invite us to look at those we meet with the love that we see in him - a love that embraces all, serves, forgives, brings healing and always sees the good in others. When we gaze at our sisters and brothers in this way, the Risen Lord is alive in us. Alleluia!

Thank you for bringing us to Jesus in our encounters with you. Your words as you ask for our prayers, your visits when you join us for liturgy, bring us deeper into the mystery. We are grateful for your gift, which supports our life. Know that as we walk these Easter days, we are very conscious of your presence with us; you always helps us to find him!

With love and prayer,

Sr. Carolyn Forgette, osc and all your Poor Clare Sisters
