Cabrini World "Saints Next Door "
On June 17th Cabrini World in collaboration with the National Shrine of St. Frances Xavier Cabrini and the Cabrini Retreat Center hosted a Zoom webinar live from Rome with Sister Bernadette Anello, MSC. In this first of a Cabrini series of webinars, Sister Bernadette spoke about the Missionary Sisters response to COVID-19. She described how 2020 makes us think of perfect vision yet this year invites us to correct our faulty vision. This pandemic propels us to a new phase of living and in this time of isolation, who are the people among us that we can call the “Saints Next Door?”
She conveys Pope Francis’s message that as missionary disciples we are to become a field hospital of service to all humanity and shares with us examples of the Cabrini World Saints Next Door.
As we prepared for the Feast of the Sacred Heart on June 19, Sister Bernadette reminds us of Mother Cabrini’s travel to Buenos Aires in 1895 over rough seas and her words of encouragement to the missionary sisters, “When we are faithful to our promises, the heart of Jesus guides us along paths of justice and holiness. His loving light shines on us and restores us.”
