“Look to the past with gratitude . . .  live the present with passion  . . .  embrace the future with hope.”

"Does Wisdom not call?...She cries aloud:
O humanity, I am calling to you...."                                 

Proverbs 8: 1-4


 “In calling you God says: ‘You are important to me, I love you, I am counting on you.' Jesus says this to each one of us!  . . . The joy of the moment in which Jesus looked at me, understanding, hearing and remembering . . . this is the secret of our joy.”

His Holiness Pope Francis


Reflecions by Sr. Mary Stuart, DW: A Radical Call to Love, Liberate Wisdom at the Heart of the World



Eternal Wisdom wants us all to bear the mark of the Cross,

to conquer the world with it rather than with the sword

to take up the Cross of transformative Wisdom

and make the world anew in love.



This quote is from CHAP 14: 173, The Triumph of EternalWisdom through the Cross taken from Rami Shapiro’s The Love of Eternal Wisdom: A Revisioning of Saint Louis de Montfort's Contemplation on Divine Wisdom. Copyright 2011, Wisdom House/Daughters of Wisdom, Litchfield, CT.

Ready, Get Set, Go!

By Sr. Barbara O'Dea, DW
he journey has begun. Its goal is EASTER. Lent is all about Easter and Easter is all about new life and a renewed relationship with God.
