“Learn a lesson from the fig tree. When its branch becomes tender and sprouts leaves, you will know that summer is near. In the same way, when you see these things happening, know that he is near, at the gates.”
- Take some time today to reflect on the seasonal changes that have taken place in nature.
- How do those changes reflect any changes within your spirit, body or mind?
- What do those changes in nature teach you about your own life?
Heritage word—“There will never be Springtime unless some changes take place, changes which are often painful and difficult, changes which mean rearranging our lives, changes which if undertaken in a loving spirit will enable us to participate more fully in the resurrection of Jesus.”
(Sister Mary Louise Ann, 8thProvincial of the Toledo Province)
