In Search of Pefect

By Sr. Nun Other 

Matthew 5:48 says, “Be perfect, therefore, as your heavenly Father is perfect.” I wear myself out trying to look perfect. I say look and not be, because I’m in enough reality to know I won’t reach that goal. In reading the verses surrounding Matthew 5:48, I discovered that God’s perfect has nothing to do with the flawless, ageless, sinless I imagine.  It is instead about forgiveness and unselfish love, woven as a beautiful tapestry within one’s heart.

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.
