Dear Friends,   The first day of summer was on June 21st and from that day on the days are becoming increasingly shorter.   And they are already selling back to school materials.  Every day is precious and so are the minutes.   I always felt that there were not enough hours in a day.  Now I

Top of the morning to you as we approach the day of the smiling Irish, St. Patrick’s Day. Our dear Mother Antonia was Irish and we can still hear her singing those Irish favorites.     Although I’m Polish I remember well the St. Patrick’s Day parades in Pittsburgh were calm compared to Louisiana, where they would throw

Warm greetings to each one of you on this January morning.   Thinking back on January, I’m remembering what has left an imprint on my mind. One of my memories was the night we took a homeless man to the Red Cross for an apparent broken jaw.   When the admissions clerk asked for his address,

Dear Friends, Here in Tijuana it’s raining and that in itself is a gift. During this season we share our gifts. Even God gave us a gift. He poured out his mercy and gave us the gift of Jesus, his only son. How great is God as he doesn’t wait for us to change before

Dear Friends As Fall approaches, I look back on August and we’ve had some pretty exciting things going on here in Tijuana. Our new Archbishop Francisco Moreno Barron has arrived.

Besides our community prayer times and mission work, we find that the most interesting conversations happen here in Tijuana at mealtimes. We make it a point not to talk about anyone because in her talks, Mother Antonia forbid her Sisters to gossip and not to be an initiator or an accomplice to tearing down someone’s
