A Special Visit Continues
Yesterday was another busy and fun filled day at Queen of Peace with the presence of Mother General Maria del Monte Auxiliadora at our Home. The day began with a special Mass celebrated by Bishop Chappetto along with our own Chaplain Fr. Amato. The Bishop’s homily message was one of preparation for Christmas. He made the analogy of how we prepared in a physical sense for Mother General’s visit. He said while we physically prepare for Christmas, we must also spiritually prepare for Christmas by listening to God speaking to us, so we may fully receive the birth of our Savior. When speaking about how to spiritually prepare, the Bishop quoted St. John of the Cross by saying “It is best to learn to silence the faculties and to cause them to be still so that God may speak.”
After Mass, Bishop Chappetto made sure to greet all those in attendance and to wish them a Blessed Christmas. The picture below of the Bishop with Mother General on his left and Mother Assistant Joseph Christine on his right will be long cherished here in our Home.
