Abstract

By Sr. Nun Other

I tend to sift, categorize, and make reasonable things I don’t understand. But, I must confess, the infinite holiness of Easter and its many mysteries are beyond my grasp. Jesus’s arrest, trial, crucifixion, and resurrection –  those four words alone – represent a highly complex series of events that forged a new symmetry between God and humankind. The sinister, the dark, and the reprehensible now stand in shadow, and we follow in His footsteps of light.

About Sr. Nun Other

May 16, 2012, completed my 30th year as a Sister. It was both a milestone and just another day in an interesting journey. Some of those thirty years included singing with Gloriae Dei Cantores, marching in Spirit of America band, and serving on our Sisters Council. As a monastic, I live surrounded by beauty and within a frame work of opportunity and possibility. I'm sixty-four (much to my surprise) and extremely grateful for my life as a sister - past, present, and future.

One thought on “Abstract

  1. I respect your view, especially your humility in admitting “But, I must confess, the infinite holiness of Easter and its many mysteries are beyond my grasp.” To that I would add, in my own journey, I am no further in certainty than to acknowledge the finiteness of my understanding and the infiniteness of the transcendent truth of God. But attempting to “make reasonable things I don’t understand” is at best an internal contradiction, and I wonder if carrying that attempt too far could amount to hubris.
