Hope Does Not Disappoint

We all face moments of discouragement in our life.  From circumstances outside of our control and sometimes from the choices we have made.            Yet, God never abandons his people.  Each day we must anchor our lives in God. God gives us the strength and the grace to weather the storms that we face.

Love Beyond All Telling:

                                       Advent Journey of Faith 

Can we pause in our Christmas preparations and reflect upon the Word of God and our own desire to make a difference in our world? Can we find holiness in our daily comings and goings, nurturing it with “a love beyond all telling” (Advent Preface) as we serve those in need? Come Christmas, can we then go tell it on the mountain that God’s love has taken flesh in Emmanuel and that we, in some small way of self-giving and in deep faith, are witnesses to this Incarnation and are making our world a better place? Let’s come together to share possible ways and sacred answers!

For more than 50 years of service, Sr. Bridget has taught students across the U.S. and  Mexico, ministered to starving children in East Africa, and lived in West Africa, Italy, and England. She has been an early educator in an HIV/AIDS day care and was the spirituality coordinator at The Boston Home, a long-term care facility for those coping with neurological disorders. Bridget co-hosted “Spirit and Life,” a weekly radio show on the Relevant Radio network, leads parish missions and  retreats across the U.S., contributes reflections to Living Faith: Daily Catholic Devotions, and serves as Sister Storyteller for young children. She also ministers at her local McDonalds. An author, her honors include the Exceptional Women Award from Magic 106.7, Greater Boston Media; being featured both on the “Making a Difference” Segment of NBC Nightly News and as the cover story in St. Anthony Messenger Magazine; an honorary Doctor of Theology degree from Stonehill College; and, most recently, the first recipient of the Caritas Dei award from Relevant Radio.

WOMEN OF STRENGTH…THEN & NOW

Women throughout history have accepted the challenges of their day and have used their God-given gifts to initiate necessary change. We will look at the lives and contributions of three outstanding women: Dorothy Day, St. Teresa of Calcutta and Sister Dorothy Stang. What gave these very special women the strength to follow God’s call and blaze new paths that led to necessary change in the world.
