This weekend I spent most of my time in bed with the flu. Yesterday I was going to join our Associates and Sisters in Fond du Lac for a day of sharing titled, "Community Under Construction." Sadly I missed it. Word on the street is that the day went well and is a great lead-in for another day to be shared together this summer. I was going to use Simon and Garfunkel's Bridge Over Troubled Waters to accompany the theme of bridge building for my part of the day. Tonight I share it with you and for all Religious Communities as we continue to seek the wisdom of the Holy Spirit in the many changes we are experiencing and the many relationships that call us to greater love.
Speaking of bridges I want to share the following news that has an impact on the life of which I am called and am committed. As some of you might know the Vatican led an investigation of the Leadership Conference of Women Religious (LCWR), and also recently held an Apostolic Visitation with Religious Communities in the United States, also an investigation of sorts. The results are in for LCWR from the Congregation of the Doctrine of the Faith (http://www.usccb.org/news/2012/12-062e.cfm). I pray again for the wisdom of the Holy Spirit in these matters and will just end it on this note with the song again offering my sentiment.
