Today we had the grace of our monthly retreat day in our new home. Everyday we have a number of visitors that come during the day so we needed to put a note on the door saying we are having a day of prayer. It was a much needed time of solitude. After our Evening Prayer we shared our reflections of the day and noticed that the Lord spoke to us in similar ways. Now that we have a home to live in it is time now for us to walk the streets, visit the markets and be among the people.
“See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it?” Is. 43:19
We are inspired and encouraged by our new Pope Francis to be among the people. Through him the Lord is doing something new. His simplicity, humility and compassion reflects God’s closeness to His people. We thank God for our new Pope.
