All in a Name

Our novices will be sharing about the meaning behind the new name they received on August 14, 2013.  Please continue to pray for them as they embrace the life Jesus has called them to live.

My name is Sister Maria Christi.  It is a beautiful gift from Christ to share in His very Holy Name.  I once heard someone describe their prayer as "I gaze upon the Lord and He gazes upon me." My gaze and heart center on Christ Crucified and the Eucharist, a Source of everlasting life.  At all times in sorrow and joy, I gain strength from our Lord who gave and who gives so abundantly and generously.  He calls each of us to love Him and to follow Him as He is the Way, the Truth, and the Life.  I only pray that I can stand at the foot of the Crucified from whom the living water and Blood stream in love, for love and with love for all of us.

Many blessings on Sr. Maria Christi. I pray that she will always gaze upon her God with the firm belief that her God gazes with love on her--even on those days when things are not quite as bright. I wish her the grace of perseverance and much happiness!
