Spirit of Love, be with Jennifer !
Farewell to Jennifer Cortez
The choice of today’s theme for our farewell to our friend and pre-novice, Jennifer, is to be commended :
« I have called you by name! »
What a sensitive way of stating the intimate relationship that Jennifer has developed with the Risen Jesus during her many years of searching his call?
In today’s Gospel, Marie Magdalena does not recognize Jesus when she first sees him. Jesus says her name : Mary !
At that moment her eyes are open. All fear and anguish are liberated.
Jesus sends Mary Magdalena to announce His great news : the poor are liberated, the blind see, the lame walk ….
She becomes a personal, committed witness: “See what the Risen Lord has done for me!”
In the footsteps of Montfort and Marie-Louise, you are called, Jennifer, to become the handmaid of our Wisdom God.
Wisdom sends you at the crossroads to gather God’s people and bring them to the table where She has prepared Her banquet for all humanity.
We pray together, Jennifer, that through your witness, the People of God will experience the Risen Christ
in the light of your love
in the colour of your care
in the beauty of your compassion.
In you, Jennifer, in our Wisdom community, Christ is Risen…. Alleluia!
Go in love and peace to proclaim Wisdom’s love for you, for all Her children of all nations throughout the earth.
