Dear Friends

We cannot give up in the face of evil. God is Love and has defeated evil through Christ’s death and resurrection. (Pope Francis)

Isn't it grand that the Easter season continues! We get to sing extra Alleluias for seven whole weeks! The fact that Easter is a season that extends throughout several weeks reminds us that Jesus' Resurrection is the last word, the final victory, the exclamation point of God's promise!

So even in the midst of whatever turmoil we may experience either within or without, we need to remember that Life and Love have triumphed and will always be the victors, over whatever chaos or evil, real or perceived, is around us. What peace that can bring to a troubled soul, a troubled world.

We sincerely thank you for your gift which makes our life of prayer possible.


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