Good Ground for Hope

19 Jul

At the jubilee Mass at St. Mary’s College, “my” Adria (golden jubilarian Sister Adria Connors) proclaimed the first of the scripture readings from the book of Wisdom: “Though you are master of might, you judge with clemency, and with much lenience you govern us; for power, whenever you will, attends you. And you taught your people, by these deeds, that those who are just must be kind; and you gave your children good ground for hope that you would permit repentance for their sins.”

Given this “good ground for hope” and given that the motto of the Sisters of the Holy Cross is “Ave Crux Spes Unica,” translated “Hail to the Cross, Our Only Hope,” it is no surprise that we sang “Lift High the Cross” at the jubilee Mass – at which “my” Adria read.
