Lenten Sentinel

by Sr Nunother  

The cardinal is a symbol of faith in winter’s darkness, a messenger of hope robed in scarlet, above the earth and of the earth.  His beauty speaks — in words not spoken — of joy, promise, and new beginnings.  I take heart this Lenten season when a cardinal pauses nearby.  His bright red feathers are a reminder of Christ’s sacrifice and the light, truth, and love that sprang from it.

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.
