Do you wonder if God really loves you?

Posted by on Mar 22, 2014 in Featured | 0 comments

Sr. Sean Mayer, FSPDid you ever catch yourself secretly wondering whether or not God really, really has our best interest at heart? It is so easy to slip into thinking that doing the will of God is automatically tantamount to a life of suffering and woe. Instead, Jesus came to bring us life – abundant life! As Pope Francis reminds us we are called to encounter and become messengers of the joy of the Gospel!

Paradoxically, however, we have to admit that the kingdom of God that Jesus preached and lived out in his own life does put us in the pathway of suffering and even conflict. Blessed are the poor, the meek, those who hunger and thirst for righteousness… (see Matthew 5:1-11)–these are not the values of the business-as-usual-world and we shouldn’t be surprised when we find opposition. In the face of this where do we find encouragement and confidence in following God’s loving plan for our lives?

Perhaps this is one of the reasons why Pope Francis is giving the Church – and the whole world – the gift of the canonization of John XXIII and John Paul II. Both of these men teach us with their lives and their words that a life of holiness is a life of deep confidence in God’s love for us.

As the editor for the Classic Wisdom Collection, I was delighted when two of my colleagues volunteered to prepare a book each for this series. Sr. Donna Giaimo compiled Secret to Happiness: Wisdom from John XXIII and Sr. Lorraine Trouvé worked on Be Not Afraid: Wisdom from John Paul II. Like the other titles in this series, Secret to Happiness and Be Not Afraid are short but substantial collections of writings about the spiritual life lived out in the real world. They both address overlapping issues of confidence, humility and trust in God. Let their words and their example inspire you!

Sr. Sean Mayer, FSP

Anniversary Day of Mother Thecla

Posted by on Feb 5, 2014 in Uncategorized | 0 comments

Fifty years ago today,  February 5, 1964, Sr. Thecla Merlo, the  Co-foundress of the Daughters of St. Paul left this world to go be with God forever in heaven.  We thank God for her motherly, generous and courage  heart that led the Daughters of St. Paul for so many years.  And now we are confident she is interceding for us from heaven.

In 1915 in Alba, Italy,  as a young woman of 21 years of age,  she accepted the invitation from Fr.  James Alberione to collaborate with him in starting the new religious congregation of  sisters, the Daughters of St. Paul, dedicated to evangelization using social communications.  In those days it was the printed word.  She took that great leap of faith, and spent the rest of her life bringing the Word of God to many.  She has said,  “Let us see to it that our heart is filled with God so as to bring him to souls.”

Today we, the Daughters of St. Paul, are blessed to be present in about 50 countries around the world and are using modern media to show the world the face of God.
