A Yoke Worth Taking Up
by Carol Zinn, SSJ -- LCWR President
We are sprinting into Ordinary Time which is, of course, anything but ordinary time for most of us. On our way we mark significant moments in our faith life, global life, religious life, and national life.
In our faith life we move from Pentecost to the feasts of the Most Holy Trinity, Corpus Christi, and Saints Peter and Paul to the 14th Sunday in Ordinary Time on July 6. In our global life we mark the most UN International Days identified in any given month: environment, oceans, deforestation/drought, victims of torture and aggression, child labor, parents, elder abuse, refugees, widows, drug abuse, and illicit trafficking. In our religious life, chapters and vow ceremonies occur within the dynamics of shifting demographics, financial realities, ministry commitments, and building/property decisions. And in our nation’s life we mark the third Fortnight of Freedom on our way to the celebration of Independence on July 4th. (Go to newsletter to see more)
