They Showed Unusual Kindness
January 18 was the opening of Church Unity Week for 2020, with a theme entitled, ‘They Showed Unusual Kindness’ and was reenacted at Mullen Home by Residents and Sisters in our beautiful chapel.
Sister Emma had been working diligently with one of our Residents Patricia Kennedy to prepare the oars with the different virtues which were witnessed during the actual shipwreck of Saint Paul on the shores of Malta.
In the center of the altar was a drawing of a replica of the original boat which had been shipwrecked. During the different readings a Resident or Sister processed up the aisle with the virtues written on the oars and placed it alongside the water beneath the boat. Let us pray that we also will bear witness to these virtues in our everyday life. “Lord, bring your church together so that everyone can join you at your banquet table.”
