Benedictine Sisters join the Clares to share their experience and wisdom.

As the Sisters so generously shared their personal experience of their move we could feel courage and clarily for our path.

Sisters Michaela and Ruth from St. Benedicts’ Monastery in St. Joseph Minnesota came south to visit us and share their experience of closing their previous home, the Monastery of St. Bede in Eau Claire, Wisconsin.

We continued our conversation though lunch.

Celebrating the Resurrection: Jesus in our Midst

After Father Michael Joncas blesses the Easter Water he makes the rounds in the Chapel while we are singing Everyone baptized in Christ has put on Christ, Alleluia

Christ is alive and we are alive in Christ. Alleluia!

The worshipers receive the living waters of Christian renewal.

Following our profoundly wonderful celebration of the Easter Triduum and the glorious Eucharist of Easter day I was looking for a book that might help me linger with these mysteries over the fifty Easter days leading us to Pentecost.  I went to Amazon to see what they were offering and found Jesus Risen in Our Midst.  This is a compilation of “essays on the Resurrection of Jesus in the Fourth Gospel”  by Sandra Schneiders.  It is a stellar work indeed.   My problem is that I cannot get past the title: Jesus Risen in Our Midst.  Holy Happy Easter Days!
