We have just celebrated Xmas and the beginning of a new year. What would be most helpful for you in the coming year? We might ask ourselves what blessings do I need and what blessing can I be to others? To feel blessed is very life giving and uplifting. To bless another is also life giving and uplifting. We [staff, residents family members and visitors] are gift to one another. So this is my wish for each of you in this New Year.
May the Blessings of the Divine One[Christ child] empower you, fill you with new awareness, birth new life within you. May God’s creative love ground you and transform you. Each day may you be blessed with an opening of your mind & heart to a deeper listening, respect and presence to all of life so that you may discover the call of the Spirit to that which is most life-giving in each of your personal given situations.
May you, each day, be blessed and be a blessing,
Sr. Elaine Abels, rscj, Co-Director of Mission Integration and Spiritual Care
