IN LOVING MEMORY

During the past few weeks of the COVID-19 pandemic, we, the Sisters of Charity of Saint Elizabeth, have lost 15 of our dear sisters. It was not possible to memorialize each sister with the rituals that bring closure and comfort.  As each sister was brought home to Convent Station, the Bells of Holy Family Chapel tolled as the entire congregation prayed together.

We thank God for these sisters who touched the lives of so many, each in her own way and with her own special gifts.

We know these sisters partnered with many of you in the mission of Charity and will be remembered with love and gratitude.

We invite you to share with us how your life was blessed by the presence of these sisters.  If you would like to offer a tribute to one of these sisters, you can do so on our Facebook page @SistersofCharityofSaintElizabeth.

The Twenty-six Spiritual Conferences of Sister Miriam Teresa

Through the writing of the 26 spiritual conferences, under obedience to her spiritual director and with the permission of the Reverend Mother, Sister Miriam Teresa became the instrument of imparting to both religious and laity her conviction that deep prayer, contemplation, and union with God are not incompatible with an active daily life.

greater perfection book covAppearing in book form as Greater Perfection after her death, the conferences have been widely circulated throughout the world and acknowledged as a source of great spiritual benefits to tens of thousands of readers.

Her message is timeless, fortified as it is with citings from Holy Scripture by a young woman without formal theological education. To many, then, the conferences have been a treasure of grace.

In the final section of Greater Perfection, Sister Miriam Teresa wrote:

Union with God, then, is the spiritual height God calls everyone to achieve – any one, not only religious but any one, who chooses, who wills to seek this pearl of great price, who specializes in the traffic of eternal good, who says 'yes' constantly to God…The imitation of Christ in the lives of saints is always possible and compatible with every state of life. The saints did but one thing – the will of God. But they did it with all their might. We have only to do the same thing; and according to the degree of intensity with which we labor shall our sanctification progress. (Greater Perfection, pp. 264-266)
