I would like to share a statement from my Adrian Dominican Congregation of sisters. July 21, 2017, Adrian, Michigan The General Council of the Adrian Dominican Sisters issued the following statement in solidarity with the people of Detroit.
Recently, one of the men who comes to the Wed. prayer session at the Meldrum site brought his five-year-old granddaughter. We were talking about Matthew’s Gospel (7: 15-20) message that you can tell a good tree by its good fruit, and a false prophet pretends to be good but will attack you. Participants were sharing how they saw the good fruit in others and in themselves. Then, I asked the little five-year-old girl, “What is your favorite thing about your grandpa?”
A sweet thing happened this afternoon.
Last week the eight new daisies we planted in the front garden were stolen. Disappointed, I decided there would be no more new plants to be snatched away. Maybe, we should just plant thorny cactus. However, our several rose bushes have never been touched. (Too difficult to steal?) So this morning I purchased two new rose bushes to add some beauty and color to the garden.
I was at the announcement when it as declared that Solanus Casey would officially be a blessed soon. I kept smiling as I thought of how proud and happy Br. Solanus would be that his original ministry of welcoming people has grown and grown. His spirit of hospitality has continued and extends to 6 different sites and to well over 1,500 people a day. I know he would love to visit our beautiful children and urge them to love and be kind to each other.
