Congregation of Our Lady of Charity of the Good Shepherd

We are an International congregation, with an apostolic or contemplative lifestyle. We express our charism together with mission partners in 72 countries.

Our Vision

We envision a new way of living that celebrates the connectedness of all God's creation, an inclusive world where the dignity and diversity of all life is honored and protected.

Our Mission

Energized by our evolving understanding of God's love, we build partnerships that promote the dignity and human rights of all, especially women and children. In solidarity, we work for the transformation of unjust systems, the flourishing of humanity and integrity of all creation.

I am with you always

The Word of God:
“If only you knew what God is offering…” John: 4:10
Reflection
In every moment of every day, God is giving to us, blessing us, loving us and caring for us. With every breath we take, God is offering us a gift – it might be the gift of love or peace or joy, or the gift of courage or strength or healing. It might be the gift of growth and change, challenge and new opportunity, or the gift of insight and understanding. In every moment, God’s gift is there for us. It might come to us in a word or touch, a feeling or thought, or an experience we share with others. God’s gift might be in something you see or hear, or something you do. Today’s Word is an invitation to you to be open to every moment of life and to receive the gift that God is offering to you in this moment.
Ritual
Sit quietly now and reflect on this… Even in this moment of quiet, God is offering you a gift…can you name God’s gift to you now in this moment? Open your hands and rest them on your lap or beside you. Let God know that you are ready to receive the gift of this moment. And when you do receive it, draw it in close to your heart and give thanks for it.
Remember
In every moment of every day, God is gifting me in some way.
