SALT OF THE EARTH…LIGHT OF THE WORLD…

by

One of our sisters died on Saturday 4th February. She was 93 years old and had been an FCJ for more than 70 years. She was still active and her death was sudden and unexpected despite her great age. The Gospel for Sunday that week was taken from Matthew 5: 13-16. “You are the salt of the earth…You are the light of the world.” How well it captures the life of this solid, well grounded and totally dedicated woman who was well able to laugh at life and herself. Even though we now gaze at God from different angles I hope she continues to be our companion, friend and inspiration as we continue the mission God has given us…

    Thank you Clare for this testimony. It is beautiful and so very true. During Sunday Mass in chapel here the priest prayed “For our beloved Sister….” Our prayers of intercession were for our dear departed sister, her brother and the family, for all her school children over the many years of teaching, for all those she has contacted over the years, for her fcJ community and for the novices who are absent just now. So, united in prayer for this wonderful woman who continues to be the salt of the earth and the light of the world.
