An Everyday Question

By Sr. Nun Other

I’ve been thinking about the question Jesus posed to His disciples in Matthew 16:15: “But what about you?” he asked. “Who do you say I am?” Simon Peter answered, “You are the Messiah, the Son of the living God.”

Who do I say Jesus is, not once, but, everyday? Is He the Messiah, Son of God, savior, liberator, and loving friend? Too often I mentally reduce Him to a mini me — selfish, unforgiving, fickle, sometimes present, sometimes not. During the remainder of Lent, I want to listen for His voice and stand in His presence — all that He is and all that I am not.

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.
