A challenge in our lives as Catholics is to recognize the person of the Holy Spirit within us and discern its guidance. To think that our bodies are its vessel, to truly know this is, well, rather disconcerting at times. Our Sisters and Nuns have come to realize clearly that their lives, their bodies, are not their own on a level we the laity struggle to understand. Let us pray for these holy women persevering in a world contrary to the call of Christianity, that they may always find from within themselves, that centering peace and guidance that is the person of the Holy Spirit. Amen.
