The Joy Of God’s Presence

As Christmas draws near I hear a plea

December 6 Vigil

On December 6, Norma Gallant, CND, together with Tammy Fox and Maureen Wiley, Associates, participated in the Vigil held to commemorate the massacre of 1989. Our annual participation seems to take on a deeper sense and urgency each year. Perhaps it has something to do with our role at the Vigil, which is to very slowly and respectfully announce each of the names of the young women. Perhaps they and their story are becoming more and more deeply known to us. Many people spoke briefly, but one person, the Constable, spoke eloquently from the perspective of his profession, and also shared very deeply from his own painful experience of an abusive situation in his own family. He, however, even in the light of that pain and while still acknowledging that the many forms of abuse still abound all around us, feels that optimism and hope from past years have now brought him in this day and age to a place of faith that we as a people are moving forward in another direction.
