Invitation by Sr. Marilyn Hettinger, OSB

Return to God with all your heart

source of grace and mercy.

Rend your hearts and not your garments.

Rending hearts – interior transformation

brings interior joy.

Joy that flows from sorrow.

Now is the acceptable time.

Time to examine core values,

to reflect on my true state

before God.

Through fasting, prayer and charity,

God’s voice speaks deep within.

What might I be?

What does God want me to be?

God’s love moves me to conversion.

I will place a new spirit in you.


A gift from Christ

Once redeemed

Now renewed.
