At times when we speak of our community life as Sisters, we describe one of the blessings of community as the grace of being present wherever one of our Sisters is present. In a very real way, I am in Florida and New Mexico, India and Nicaragua, because there is a Sister of Notre Dame present there.
Today, we celebrate the Feast of All Saints. One of the great mysteries and blessings of our Catholic faith is our belief in the Communion of Saints, that we are one in our striving to grow in likeness to God. Just as in our religious community, I rejoice that wherever one of the Communion of Saints is present, I am there. I am in heaven, and the Saints are present here on earth with us!
Today we celebrate our oneness with one another and with God. Happy All Saints day!
