Hello everyone, I hope you are well and keeping safe. I know Noreen Murphy wouldn't mind me sharing her email to me with all of you. I think she really expresses what we are going through. Thanks Noreen. Once a member of IHM, always a member!
"Watching this [video of the May crowning] brought tears , as having been a member of IHM from 1968- 2017, brought back so many memories. I moved to Vermont, ,back to my roots, after 49 years. Never in my 76 years, did I ever think that my church would be locked , nor would I be unable to receive the sacraments. I truly believe that Our Creator is trying to tell us something . But are we listening ?I remember my early grade teacher telling me that Jesus hides himself in that little white host , so we will chase after Him every day of our lives. How I yearn for those doors to open , and be able to once again receive these precious sacraments, but most of all, the Holy Eucharist!!
Than you for posting words of encouragement, and the crowning of Our Heavenly Mother on live video.
A big hello to all of my longtime church colleagues and the sisters at the House of prayer. Noreen Murphy
