Sister Jeanne Ann – Sunday Morning

Sunday morning - photo by Sister Jeanne Ann Weber

As I looked out the lounge window overlooking Lake Superior, I saw a magnificent sunrise!  I went to get my camera and opened the lounge door to get a better picture from the balcony.  I quickly took two pictures as it was cold, and I was only wearing night gear and slippers as I wanted to make sure that the sky would not change.

Earlier I had been doing Lectio Divina, pondering God’s Word, on the Sunday scriptures.  They were about the leper who had been healed.  I thought about what it must have been like to be shunned as a leper at the time of Christ, as well as thinking of present day lepers:   people avoided and forgotten because of their poverty and/or illness of body, mind, or spirit or the many other reasons people are marginalized.  I interceded for the many “lepers” in our world, as well as myself.  There was also an awareness to reach out to those I meet with a more compassionate heart.

I was grateful for Christ’s healing, mercy and blessings in my life.  I thought of Luke’s Gospel of the ten lepers and only one returned to give thanks.  This Sunday morning was a time to also remember to give thanks for sunrises and so much more!

“Listen carefully, my child, to your master's precepts, and incline the ear of your heart. Receive willingly and carry out effectively your loving father's advice, that by the labor of obedience you may return to Him from whom you had departed by the sloth of disobedience.”
–St. Benedict of Nursia, The Rule of Saint Benedict
