On January 7 we are celebrating the 150th birthday of our Co-foundress, Mother Mary Michael. Mother was not "romantically" minded when it came to the spiritual life but extremely practical and yet very cheerful. She emphasized the importance of being faithful in the little things of our life. The hidden "little fidelities" please God greatly and enable us to be faithful in bigger matters as well. Every Christian can use this idea of little fidelities as a way of deepening their relationship with God.
May our imitation of Mother Mary Michael who did ordinary things extraordinarily well and extraordinary things in an ordinary fashion help us grow in our love for God.
