Celebrating the Paris Agreement's 5th anniversary

It was five years ago, on December 12, 2015, that Canada signed the Paris Agreement on climate change. That year, the Sisters of the Congregation of Notre-Dame had written to the Prime Minister. This is what they had to say then; five years later we continue the fight against climate change, and keep urging all government levels to do the same!

CLIMATE CHANGE – Taking a Stand

We are members of the Congrégation de Notre-Dame de Montréal, a congregation of over 900 women religious committed to education and present on four continents. Approximately the same number of associates also share our mission. Our presence in certain more vulnerable regions of the world, namely Africa and Central America, make us acutely aware of current global risks. The plight of women is one of our biggest concerns.

Reflection for the Third Sunday of Advent

Isaiah 61:1-2A, 10-11; Psalm 126 or Luke 1:46b-551 Thessalonians 5:16-24; John 1:6-8, 19-28

“The spirit of the Lord GOD is upon me, because the LORD has anointed me; he has sent me to bring glad tidings to the poor, to heal the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives and release to the prisoners,” (Isaiah 61:1) Only the spirit of God can help us to teach and to be teachable in this time of global unrest due to COVID-19, chronic illnesses, climate change, natural disasters, racism, injustice, boko harram, ambazonians... Without God’s spirit, our teaching cannot bring life to the wounded world. Without humility we cannot be teachable. To be baptized is a blessing. God’s spirit is not out of me but in me. What a great love to mankind.

My God, Bless the New Year

Yes, Lord, time passes by

the time, no, but we pass.

Thus, it is with this song

formerly sung so many times

by my parents

and by all my siblings

that I want to pray to you.

But as you see, Lord,

already, I am changing the words

and apologize to the composer.

A while back,

everyone addressed you in formal terms.

But, I will be informal.

This makes me feel closer to you.
