On Pilgrimage-9

Travel from Germany to Italy kept me from the computer for a couple of days, so now that I have reached the center in Rome for the Sisters of Notre Dame, I would like to extend the thoughts of the previous post. St. Julie gave us her great appreciation for God’s goodness, so manifest in the beauty of creation and all its many marvels.

Today, we Notre Dames celebrate the gift of creation, and we strive to do our part to protect and respect it. I had the privilege of seeing so much natural beauty in the Netherlands, Germany, and Belgium, and today I will be out in sunny Italy! As St. Julie would say:  “How good is the good God!”

Father Elting invited the young women, Hilligonde and Elisabeth to consider consecrating their lives and work to God.
