Update! In May 2012, we will be launching an interactive prayer blog right here! We will post our monthly meditation, along with a reflection question or two from Sister Anita Quigley, SHCJ. We hope you will watch our meditations and share your thoughts, reactions, and feelings. Be sure to check back and/or subscribe to our blog by signing up in the box on the right. By signing up, you will receive an e-mail when we post the first meditation in May. We hope you will join us, as we work to build a worldwide community of prayer!
“I am so busy.”
“I have too much on my plate.”
“I don’t know if I’m coming or going.”
How often have we uttered these words or heard them spoken by friends and family members? In a world that runs 24/7, it is essential to slow down, take stock, and pray.
Since 2010, the American Province of the Society of the Holy Child Jesus has created monthly meditations that are posted on our website. Designed to be topical and encourage reflection on modern themes, the meditations have been a source of comfort and strength for many.
In preparing topics for our 2012 meditations, we examined the issues that were grabbing the headlines–poverty, unemployment, war, and more. We understand that these issues have a profound impact on the lives of many. To determine which concerns resonate most with the members of our Holy Child community, we invite all to complete our survey by this Friday, January 6, 2012. It will take less than three minutes to complete and will greatly inform our meditations for 2012. To date, we’ve had close to 400 people respond and share their thoughts. Let your voice be heard too! Complete the survey today!
Based on the survey responses, we will produce three-five minute meditations that can be viewed on our website. We hope the members of the Holy Child Community—and beyond—will use these meditations to find peace in their lives and help in building a worldwide community of prayer.
