In Light Of

By Sr. Nun Other
During our weekly Liturgy of the Hours, we encounter these words from Psalm 36: In Your light, we see light. It occurs to me that my light — in and of itself — is based on me. I transfuse advice with my experiences, my opinions, and unfortunately, my agenda. God’s light is a burst of life, clear and transparent, that transmits a spectrum of multifaceted color. When I’m tempted to speak too quickly, I need to focus through the prism of God’s love. In Your light, we see light. This one, wonderful sentence tucked in the middle of a Psalm, makes all the difference.

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.
