Barely two years after the devastating fires that consumed neighborhoods in Santa Rosa and the surrounding areas, the area is again threatened by fire. By God's providence, the Community is safe and able to continue our life of prayer and sacrifice on behalf of those more directly in the fire's path.
We mentioned in a previous post the great aid spiritual reading is to the religious in her consecrated life. In thanksgiving for these treasures and in keeping with our charism of "magnifying Jesus Christ by communicating the Beauty, Goodness, and Truth," in the coming months, we wish to share with you the gold mines contained within the pages of our library books!
"The Rosary, though clearly Marian in character, is at heart a Christocentric prayer. ... it has all the depth of the Gospel message in its entirety ... It is an echo of the prayer of Mary, her perennial Magnificat for the work of the redemptive Incarnation which began in her virginal womb. With the Rosary, the Christian people sits at the school of Mary and is led to contemplate the beauty on the face of Christ and to experience the depths of his love. Through the Rosary the faithful receive abundant grace, as though from the very hands of the Mother of the Redeemer."
“See that you do not despise one of these little ones, for I say to you that their angels in heaven always look upon the face of my heavenly Father.”
