This evening was our children's Mass at Mother House and it was so beautiful! The kids worked so hard to practice the music and prayers and they did really well. One of the girls has the most beautiful smile that I have ever seen and she stood in front of the altar looking proud and smiling so big. It made it harder to think about leaving them in a couple of days!
I had dinner with my friends from Spain. They are really nice and usually translate everything they say, but sometimes I can understand some of the conversation on my own. They are leaving tomorrow for Darjeeling so I won't get to see them again before I leave. But now I have friends in Spain if I ever go there : )
It's Labor Day in the states right? Happy Labor Day! I have limited shopping time now so if there's anything you want me to get don't hesitate to ask, and I love a challenge!
Father's homily today was about smiling and choosing joy even in the midst of great trials. We have to choose to be joyful, no matter what is going on in our lives. Our joy brings joy to others. Smile!
Love to you all, see you soon! ~Corina
Prayer of Saint Francis
Lord, make me an instrument of your peace. Where there is hatred, let me sow love; where there is injury,pardon; where there is doubt, faith; where there is despair, hope; where there is darkness, light; and where there is sadness, joy. O Divine Master, grant that I may not so much seek to be consoled as to console; to be understood as to understand; to be loved as to love. For it is in giving that we receive; it is in pardoning that we are pardoned; and it is in dying that we are born to eternal life. Amen
