“Now is the acceptable time, now is the day of salvation…” 2 Corinthian 6:2

13 Feb

Early this morning, we went with Father Rosseau to St. Michael’s Parish, which is on the other side of town, for our Ash Wednesday Mass. Driving through the town of Jacmel, you could see the remains of Carnival 2013. Sonya, our neighbor, went with us.

St. Michael’s was damaged by the earthquake so, for now, the people of God need to worship in an outside space. We were moved by the deep faith of the people who gathered for Mass and the distribution of Ashes, and were moved by the beauty of the liturgy. No one was in a hurry; the priests took their time to mark the forehead of each person with a blessing.

In this parish, we already know some people; and it was good to see them again. Also, at the end of Mass, we were introduced, and the priest mentioned that we would be working with the children. We do not know about this yet, but maybe God has a plan in mind for us. “Now is the acceptable time, now is the day of salvation…”

    Truly, this is an “acceptable time” for you to be where you are in our name. As we all begin our Lenten journey, may your ministry reflect the call of true discipleship..all in His name. I really enjoy your blog and the pictures you post. I fell like I am right beside both of you and I’m sharing in your day to day lives in Jacmel. Hopefully your convent is getting more settled and that it is beginning to feel like your true Franciscan dwelling. Kepp up the blessed work and may the Spirit direct your every movement and choice. +God bless your generous hearts.

    I agree with Sister Lucette, I too feel so close to both of you expecially in prayer. The Spirit has a plan for you.
