The Servants' Privilege

One of the apostolates of our Community is to service in residences of a few Bishops in the United States. One of these residences is the Apostolic Nunciature in Washington, D.C. The day to day life of the Sisters who serve here revolves around a horarium (order of the day) which is mostly similar to the schedules that all of us keep. Prayer, Holy Mass, and Community time are all mingled with apostolic service. Much of what the Sisters do at the Nunciature is in the realm of cooking, cleaning or laundry.

It is in great joy that we continue to celebrate Christ's Resurrection. These days are certainly filled with HOPE! Although Easter morning greeted us with snow flurries, the novices and postulants were filled with the graces of the Easter Triduum and enjoyed the new life of Jesus which lives in each of them. We have prayed for the intentions of all of our loved ones, those most in need of prayers and those who have no one to pray for them. May you also experience the peace which only Christ can bring. Alleluia!
