Dominican SistersRooted in Mission

To Praise. To Bless. To Preach.

Dear Friends,

Not long ago I received a small plant as a gift. I was delighted by this earthy-green surprise! I began to think about how satisfying it is to watch something grow.

We might look at prayer in much the same way. It is the seed from which we grow, in our relationship with God. Through prayer we share our innermost thoughts and feelings with the One who always understands. In this sharing, our relationship deepens.

And as with the seed, prayer, too, needs rich soil for its roots to thrive. The roots of our prayers mature throughout our lives—amidst the joys and the hardships. But we draw strength from each other, our faith, and our loving God. Here, we set our roots: in this firm foundation that may still see us shaken, but not uprooted.

As you know, it is through prayer and study, community and service, that we live our lives in mission each and every day. Your support sustains this work. If you are able to make a financial gift today, we are grateful beyond measure. Above all, we ask you to continue to be with us, fortifying the roots of our prayers and our lives with your presence.

May you be held closely by Jesus our Healer and our Refuge, and by our Blessed Mother, Mary.

Sr. Sandra Delgado, OP, Prioress
