Sr. Frances Vista, DC introduces the Vincentian Service Corps West Newsletter.
The Season of Advent calls us to live in the present while looking forward to the future.
As you read through the apostolic reflections of four VSC members, (pages 3&4) there is no question that each one of the members has entered into his/her deepest self.
They are living the present while looking forward to the future. There is no doubt that each one of them is discovering the movement of the Holy Spirit that urges them to hope. Each one of them hopes for the best for each person they serve because we are all told “that nothing is impossi- ble with God” (Luke 1:37) because those who hunger and thirst for justice, will be satisfied.
As we begin this new Liturgical Year, like Mary, can we also say the words, “Behold, I am the handmaid of the Lord. May it be done to me according to your word.”? (Luke 1:38) As we anticipate the coming of the “light of the human race”, how do we prepare for Jesus’ arrival?
Enjoy their reflections, read the about what they have been doing and see their pictures.
