FEAST of St.Clare -- St. Clare of Assisi is the patron saint of TV's & computer screens & was an early follower of St. Francis. Late in her life, she fell too ill to attend church, and one day the images and sounds of the entire Mass appeared in full on the wall of her room.

The feast of the Visitation of the Blessed Virgin Mary is tomorrow - "Blessed are you among women, and blessed is the fruit of your womb. . ." And Mary remained with Elizabeth about three months and then returned to her home. #VisitationofMary #BlessedBeTheFruit

A campus walk reveals the beauty of nature in Sylvania.
"Our fundamental origins
Immeasurable worth
Beauty by default
Born of the Earth
We abuse it and destroy it
Despite it all it gives
But nature is powerful;
It surrounds us
It lives." #treesome #horsechestnut #Sylvania

After yesterday's verdict we pray: for George Floyd & his family. . .for Derek Chauvin & his family. . .and that both people of color & law enforcement personnel remain protected from daily threats and that they can safely interact with people. #BlackLivesMatter #peace #solutions

Living mercy is about respecting all people regardless of race, religion, gender identity, sexual orientation, or life experience. It's about reaching out to the poor, the sick, the unwanted, and the brokenhearted. It's about loving God and loving others without counting costs.

Easter gives us hope in this world of pain, sorrows and tears.. . it reminds us that life is worth living. Let us “cling” to our resurrected Lord! “Peace be with you!” #EasterSunday #Easter2021 #ResurrectionSunday

Today we remember God’s great love for us. Wishing you a blessed Good Friday. (Black Locust Cross- #Sylvania Franciscan campus, stands 18 ft. above ground & was carved by Srs. Jeremias & Grace Ellen, & others. Dedicated 1984.
