Franciscan Sister of Christian Charity Sister Jan Villemure reflects on the charism of simplicity.
We live a simple life that is filled with many experiences. My missioning in 6 states I have seen a tremendous amount of beauty on Earth. Praying the psalms on the shores of Hawaii made our morning and evening prayer of the Church come alive in a new way.
I have shared the beauty of many people of God, different cultures and ways of living. When you live among the people, not as a tourist, you become one with them e.g. St. Theresa, Kekaha, Hawaii. You truly know and understand that we are so much the same.
