Zoom and See Retreat: Thank you!

Thank you! for the prayer support for our first CND ‘Zoom and See’ afternoon retreat. We were 9 women online. We used a variety of resources – video clips and song selections, PowerPoint slides and personal witness stories. Our time included silence and group sharing. And at the end, all seemed pleased.

Together we chose Sunday, June 13 for our second instalment. Continuing with the letter from Pope Francis for Vocation Sunday, we will focus our attention on "Service" for Saint Joseph, Saint MB, our CND stories and what those who gather are seeking.

Thank you! Have a great weekend. Blessings!

The Intersection of Homelessness and Human Trafficking

In addition to UN Bill C-15, another issue on the UN agenda related to our Congregation de Notre-Dame priorities is the relationship of homelessness to human trafficking. It is reported that over four million people are trafficked every year, 80 percent of whom are women and girls and 90 percent of whom are sexually exploited. One of the UN Developmental Goals was to establish a working group for Affordable Housing and Social Protection, as it was apparent that homelessness was a key factor in the vulnerability of those who were prey to the designs of human traffickers.

May we continue to hold in prayer those affected by this natural disaster.

HOW BIG IS MY WORLD…MY GOD?

We tend to be well-armored against authentic God experience, because it always leads us into the unfamiliar, that new terrain where we are not in control and God is. St. Augustine said, ‘Si comprehenderis, non est Deus’: ‘If you can understand it, it is not God.’ I guess that is why God usually has to break in or break us down to break through to us. We try to pull God into our little minds and worlds, when this big God is trying to pull us into a much bigger world, which we, almost by nature, resist. Jesus called it ‘the kingdom of God.’” Richard Rohr (Introduction to Paul Coutinho’s book How Big Is Your God?)
