Margaret Anna Fridays

Every Friday, I’m going to share a quote from the founder of my groovy sisters, Margaret Anna Cusack, known in religion as Mother Francis Clare. This week’s installment …

Jesus is coming as the Sun of justice. Oh, let us beseech Him to ripen the fruits of grace in our souls: alas! perhaps the little plants of grace have hardly yet commenced to germinate. But, beneath the rays of his powerful Sun, they will shoot forth and muliply rapidly. Let us beseech our sweet Infant King to come quickly, and illuminate us 'sitting in darkness and the shadow of death.' Let us beseech Him to enable us to reflect His light onothers, like the great Apostle of today. Let us beseech Him to enable us to overcome our doubts and unbelief, and in our measure to evangelize even until death.
