Today, Sunday, is the day when our country celebrates our mothers. It is a special day for us as we give thanks for our mothers, to those women who brought us to life. For those of us whose mothers are deceased, it is a day to remember all that our mothers did for us. Sometimes those memories are mixed but take a minute to re-member the good things-the life-giving things we received from mom. Do something nice for your mother-a tiny thing-she doesn't need a huge gift. In fact, something homemade would make her the happiest.
We remember too, Mary, the Mother of Jesus, whose yes to God was one of the most important events in the history of the world. Let us give thanks to Mary for her great generosity and our own mothers for the gift of life. Happy Mother's Day to all!
This blog is an opportunity to share with our friends and others more about our community, our ministries, how we live, and what's important to us. We hope you enjoy reading it. Please feel free to ask questions and post feedback. Looking forward to hearing from you.
We (Sr. Pat and Sr. Jeannie) are the main writers of this blog. Each of us loves our Ursuline life and wants to share it with others. We both were educated by Ursulines our whole lives, at St. Philip Neri School in the Bronx, the Academy of Mt. St. Ursula and the College of New Rochelle.
Currently we both are involved in education.
Sr. Pat is a teacher and campus minister at The Ursuline School in New Rochelle. She also serves part time as a member of our leadership team.
Sr. Jeannie is now principal of the Academy of Mt. St. Ursula in the Bronx.
We are both active members of our Ursuline community and are excited about the promise of the future.
Guest writers will sometimes be featured on this blog.
Ursulines are women grounded in faith, love for God, the people of God, the Church, and the earth. We strive to embody's Angela's spirit through prayerful living, attending to the needs of the people-especially women and children, promoting justice, peace and reconciliation. Inspired by the Gospel, we have committed our talents, indeed our very lives, to fostering change within the Church and society at large
