Monica Lambton Visits Truro, Nova Scotia

Submitted by Co-Coordinator Anna Rowley

Sunday evening, June 9th Truro and Halifax associates gathered in Truro for Monica Lambton’s presentation: Fanning the Flames of Mission. Monica, coordinator of Visitation Province Office of Justice and Peace and the Integrity of Creation, through prayer, scripture, reflection, music, discussion, videos, and relevant readings reminded us “We are called to fan the flames for others.” (2 Timothy 1:6). When we watch the news or read about climate change and those on the peripheries it is easy to become overwhelmed. However, we reflected on how we are all part of the great work of climate action and going to the peripheries. Whether our part is small, working one on one, or part of a bigger work it is important to share our positive action stories. Action brings hope and becoming an ally, like the Hebrew midwives in Exodus, reminds us that playing a supporting role contributes to the whole. St. Marguerite Bourgeoys reminds us that “The Blessed Virgin…never excused herself from any journey on which there was good to be done…” Writings of Marguerite Bourgeoys p. 50.

Like Marguerite, on our journey to answer the cries of the earth and the poor, we associates must act with courage and boldness. We are grateful to Monica for sharing this thought provoking and encouraging presentation.
