Day for Travelers' Blessing

Pleasures of Being
Together and
Making Something

In all of our prayers times together during these eight days we have made a beautiful joyful noise for the Lord. In addition, during one of the days that all eighteen of us Redemptoristines nuns from around the world spent together, we handcrafted some beautiful things for the Lord. These were reflections of of our own lives of prayer and spiritual journeys with God. Here is Sr. Maria Celeste sculpting her own piece.

This statuette is Sr. Maria Linda's image of the Samaritan Woman at the Well. This woman meets Jesus who offers her "living water."

Our own Sr. Moira, always so creative, sculpted this perfect rose.

Sr. Weena's creation captures all the action of an elephant rider in her native Thailand.
Today four of the sisters will return to Liguori, MO after receiving a travelers' blessing. It is always hard to say "Goodbye."
