Snow at Nazareth

In Nazareth, snowflakes descended upon the Motherhouse like prayers of peace, each a serene reminder of God’s presence, transforming the landscape into a tranquil canvas of divine grace.

    Me and my wife enjoyed the 50th reunion of her class of Postulants of 50 years. The largest class ever to enter the
    Sisters Charity. I am truly greatful Her name was Patricia Fichlie she passed away 23 Years ago I was thankful to have her for 40 years of my life.

    Snow at Nazareth always brings back a favorite memory of novitiate days there: persuading Sr. Mary Daniel in the Big Kitchen to lend aspirants like Tootsie Gish, Kieran Medley and me a couple of large aluminum bowls to use for sliding down “laundry hill ” — an undertaking that caused even Sr. Mary Rosine to laugh out loud. Serenely beautiful as snow at Nazareth always is, I’ll forever remember it with a smile and with unending gratitude for my years there.

    What a beautiful and serene overview Spalding! After contemplating what occurred to me, a wish. I wish for every snowflake to dissolve and rise up every prayer ever said upon the land. Let it be, Let it be. 🙏💕
