Sr. Marjorie HebertA Lenten Reflection from Sr. Marjorie

One of my all time favorite prayers is that of Psalm 139! In this prayer, I call upon our all-knowing and ever-present God. The words of this psalm call me to acknowledge how very much God knows about me and still loves me wholly and uniquely. I am reminded that there is nothing that God does not know about me and still He loves me unconditionally. Read Sr. Marjorie's full reflection.
