Weekly Reflection - October 27, 2019

Sparrow on the Roof
Sister Simon Edelhuber

Feisty, noisy little tramp!
Sideling down the shingled edge
Loudly proclaiming your opinion
every inch of the way
Like a schoolboy arguing his claims
in a ball game dispute.

Stop your shrill scolding
And take back those ragged stems of grass
You've crammed in that crevice underneath the roof.

Ubiquitous clown!
I wonder if God chuckled in
prankful glee
When he created you.

Upcoming Retreat:
3-Day: Silent Directed Retreat

Begins and is Presented by Sr. Rachel Dietz, OSB

Resident Total


This retreat is based on the Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius of Loyola. It is a time to practice silence in order to make room for God to work in your life and by this, to strengthen your relationship with Him. In the silence you are better able to hear God’s invitation to open your heart and surrender your soul in a deeper way. Each day you will meet with a Spiritual Director to assist you in discerning God’s invitation and to offer suggestions to guide you during your silence. Cost: $300.00. A $50.00 non-refundable, non-transferable deposit is required at the time of registration. Deadline for registration is January 16, 2020.
