Passing Pilgrim by Sr. Marilyn Hettinger, OSB

We are pilgrims on a journey.

What do I have to offer

to my sister pilgrims?

A smile

to acknowledge their presence.

Time

just to be with them.

A thank you

for their dedication to God.

A prayerful presence for them.

Listen

with the ear of the heart.

Attentive

to their needs.

Acknowledge

their giftedness.

Support

their weakness

whether of body or character.

Rejoice

in their achievements.

Encourage

in difficult times.

See

the good in everyone.

Treat

all as Christ.

Display

an attitude of gratitude.

Offer

my love and prayers.
