My feet are just beginning to walk on solid ground again after a spell of ten days in bed with a bad dose of flu.  How grateful I am to my very loving community who took care of me so kindly and generously in recent days.   How very beautiful community life can be when we do our best to live it!   My little group has lived its companionship to the full these days…Thank you God for my dear companions!

    Thanks for writing about this. I hope you’re feeling much better. And to think I spent those days on my feet in the footsteps of Marie Madeleine!

    The FCJs are truly blessed. Your community life and companionship really left a deep impression in me when I visited last year. God bless you all.

    Hi Clare,
    Thanks for writing about your great sense of community while you recovered from the flu. Hope you are feeling better.
    Your post reminded me of the time I spent recovering from hip surgery at SHC in Calgary. The FCJ Sisters there invited me to stay a while and truly had a huge part in my healing.
    Take good care,

    Snap, Clare! how I agree with you… I’ve experienced mobility difficulties, voice loss and nothing has been too much trouble for colleagues, CiMs and FCJs -I felt so cherished that I was tempted not to get better , Guess you’re home safely Geralyn,
