For the service of all

May 13
"And you, women living alone, realize what you can accomplish through your dedicated vocation. Society is appealing to you on all sides. Not even families can live without the help of those who have no families. Especially you, consecrated virgins, in a world where egoism and the search for pleasure would become law, be the guardians of purity, unselfishness and piety. Jesus who has given to conjugal love all its plenitudes has also exalted the renouncement of human love when this is for the sake of divine love and for the service of all..."
-To Women, Vatican Council II Closing Speeches and Messages, Pope Paul VI
Today’s Reflection:
Single women, consecrated virgins, and nuns play a special role in the Church. Reach out today and let a sacred sister know how much you care for and appreciate her and her contribution to your friendship, family and/or to the Church.

-To Women, Vatican Council II Closing Speeches and Messages, Pope Paul VI
Today’s Reflection:
What does it mean to "reconcile men with life?" How do you think this applies to your spiritual maternity? How are you doing in this regard?
