Quote of the Day and New Website!

"It was not you who chose me,
but I who chose you
and appointed you to go
and bear fruit that will remain."
(John 15:16)

Oh, that quote is SO meaningful to me, especially right now! The consecrated life was/is not of my own choosing. I have long desired so deeply for the fruit of motherhood. But His words, "I have chosen you to bear fruit that will remain"... could very well be referring to the fruit of spiritual motherhood.

Today I discovered that the Dominican Sisters of St. Cecilia have a most beautiful newly-redone website. I will be visiting them in a few weeks and it is exciting to explore everything on the new site. Be sure to visit it!

  1. I looked at the website and I have to say (not wanting to influence your choice, of course) this is totally Claire!

    I can't wait to hear *hem* your full story (when you get a chance to tell it to us, of course) and all about your retreat at the Dominicans of St. Cecilia!



I love comments, provided they are charitable and respectful! :)
