Prayer to Saint Joseph (March 19)

It is always during Lent

that we celebrate your feast, Joseph.

It is therefore in great humility that you are celebrated.

A feast in the image of your very simple life!

I still want to celebrate you in an act of fervour.

Thank you for all the favours that you grant me

as well as to the people who turn to you.

News from Visitation Province

On Saturday morning, March 11, several of the Ottawa Sisters and Associates gathered for a time of visiting and reflection. This was a follow-up to the Lenten

Reflection, “Finding Grace in the Wilderness,” that Debie Thomas presented on Friday, February 24th, 2023.

The reflection question, “What have been the deserts where the Spirit has driven me in order to learn a kind of love that is independent of external circumstances?” led to some deep sharing and a greater appreciation of the journeys each of us has taken over the years. We highly recommend the book “Into the Mess & Other Jesus Stories: Reflections on the Life of Christ,” by Debie Thomas, that was published in 2022. Her Lenten retreat was based on the story “Tempte d” taken from this book.
