Let Us Make Hope Together

It is a huge danger to pretend that awful things do not happen. But you need enough hope to keep going. I am trying to make hope.  Flowers grow out of darkness.
– Corita Kent

When I was in high school I admired the art work, the serigraphs, of Sister Corita Kent. She was one of the Sisters of the Immaculate Heart of Mary in Los Angeles who were censured by Cardinal McIntyre in 1970, resulting in about 90 per cent of the sisters being dispensed from their vows because they remained true to the call of Vatican II to modernize their lives and the charism of their founders, rather than allow the cardinal to dictate their attire and the horarium of their community and prayer life.

We still live in hope, regardless of our circumstances. May we always, as Corita suggests, “make hope”.

Corita’s art work can bee seen on her website.
