Day of Recollection

31 May, the InterCongregation Women Religious is organising a Day of Recollection for Young Women who are discerning their vocation. This is kind of a follow-up session from our first gathering on Vocation Sunday. Back then we have about 12 young women who came. Since this day of prayer is open to all young women, we hope there will be more people attending. Our desire is that through this regular meetings, young women will have more point of entry to know the religious in Singapore and bring to awareness of their own vocation. Please pray for them.

An Afternoon with the Daughters of St. Paul

What's up here in FSP Singapore? Lately, both Sr. Karen and myself are planning to invite young women over to the convent for an afternoon, just to share about us, meaning as Daughters of St. Paul. We realized that small as we are as a country, many people do not know us, even though they might seen us around at the parishes. So, please help to pass the words around.

God, Grant Me the Glory of "Thy Gift"

God, widen my vision so I may see
the afflictions You have sent to me--
Not as a cross too heavy to wear
that weighs me down in gloomy despair--
Not as something to hate and despse
but as a gift of love sent in disguise--
Something to draw me closer to You
to teach me patience and forearance, too--
Something to show me more clearly the way
to serve You and love You more every day--
Something priceless and precious and rare
that will keep me forever safe in Thy care
Aware of the spiritual strength that is mine
if my selfish, small will is lost in Thine!
(Helen Steiner Rice)
