Wisdom Prayer

This Wisdom Prayer has guided our discernment for many years:

I, Wisdom, am with you.
I am a light that will never grow dim.
Love me and you will see me.
Look for me and you will find me.
At the slightest indication of your desire for me,
I will make myself known to you.
Watch for me at the very start of what you
are about, and you will have no trouble.
You will find me, ever present, sitting at your table.
Even thinking about my presence will help you.
Be aware of my presence, my concern,
my willingness to inspire and to instruct you.
As you meet with each other,
I will meet with each and all of you.
Wisdom 6.12-17

Spring in Taiwan

Sister Scholastica and Novice Misericordia

I was passing by on my way to Japan, so thought I would drop in to visit the Sisters in Taiwan. A junior Sister from their China mission is visiting the Motherhouse as a Taiwanese novice prepares for first vows. In the picture, Sister Scholastica from China is on the left and Novice Misercordia on the right. Living at the monastery are five Vietnamese women who are looking at monastic life. It is a busy place.

The Sisters of Annunciation Monastery, Bismarck, ND, met on Saturday, October 22, 2016, to discuss and approve their four year plan.  Work on the plan began in August 2015 and was helpful as they discerned and elected a prioress in April 2016.  The five main areas of the plan are community life, leadership, membership, ministries, and sponsorship.  

The sisters are pictured in the community room of the monastery.
