Presentation of the Lord

To all religious;
may God grant you an abundance of love on this feast day of the Presentation of our Lord.
Carry the fire of love and the knowledge of Jesus everywhere. When your heart overflows with His love, you will be at peace and whoever encounters you, will also encounter God.

As we celebrate, let us remember that Jesus is the true light of the world. Let us reflect and be a witness of this light to all the people that we meet.
Be an ambassador for Christ. May you be anchored to Jesus in your life of prayer as you continue to dedicate your life to God. Bring the Good News to everyone.

“Give thanks to the Lord for His love endures forever.” Ps 106, 1


GO FORTH! Remember the beauty of your first call. Jesus continues to call you today with the same full love and untamed grace. GO FORTH! There is always more to do, to encounter, to be grateful for, and to be astonished by. Begin and end with the joy of prayer—the marrow of consecrated life. GO FORTH! Each of us has a role to play in the Church. Witness and sow well each day and look to tomorrow with hope. GO FORTH! Grow in love for God so that others will be attracted by the divine light in you. Welcome the new vocations the Lord sends to continue the work of consecration. We ask this through the intercession of Mary, Mother of God and first disciple of her son, Jesus, our Lord. Amen.” — Pope Francis

Psalm 23 

The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want.
In verdant pastures he gives me repose;

Beside restful waters he leads me; he refreshes my soul.
He guides me in right paths for his name’s sake.

Even though I walk in the dark valley
I fear no evil; for you are at my side
with your rod and your staff that give me courage.

You spread the table before me in the sight of my foes;
you anoint my head with oil, my cup overflows.
Only goodness and kindness follow me all the days of my life;
and I shall dwell in the house of the Lord for years to come.   Ps 23; 1-6
