13th General Chapter- Second Day

Sister Helena - Sunday, September 07, 2014

September 7, 2014

As the Universal Church gathers to celebrate the 23rd Sunday in Ordinary Time, the Capitulars and Avila Sisters, joined Very Reverend Mario Esposito, O.Carm. in the Eucharistic liturgy at St. Teresa's Chapel in Germantown, NY.  The readings from the prophet Ezekiel, Saint Paul's Letter to the Romans, and the Gospel according to St. Matthew, talked about the demands of true Charity, understood as the good of one's neighbor, even when that involves the discomfort of fraternal correction. Father Mario's homily built on the foundation of the readings to speak about Community life and the challenges that come with it. You can read the full homily by opening the link below.

On this Day of Prayer and Reflection, the Exposition and Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament gave the Sisters the personal time needed to listen to the voice of the Holy Spirit.  Shortly after morning brunch, a prayer service was held in Chapel to listen to the  words of Venerable Mary Angeline Teresa  written many years ago, as she exhorted her daughters to continue in the way of love, unity, prayer, and fidelity, with their feet set firmly on the ground, hands confidently positioned for the work ahead and the eyes of faith fixed firmly on Jesus!
