Today, the Benedictine Sisters of Virginia celebrate 144 years in the Commonwealth. On May 1, 1868, two sisters left St. Marys, PA for Richmond and, as they say, the rest is our history. Our Morning Prayer was especially beautiful. The hymn texts highlighted the power of being a community. “Let us build a house where love can dwell and all can safely live. A place where saints and children tell, how hearts learn to forgive.” This house is built on love. It stands today because we are learning to forgive as we have been forgiven. Powerful stuff, when you think about it.
