On the Second Day of Christmas

From the Christmas Card of the Dominican Sisters of San Rafael to you:

God’s infinite love has come to us.
God chose to become human
to teach us to live
in trust, in hope, and in love.

      Thanks, Rexlin. Isn’t it though? We put the image on our Christmas card this year . . . Trying to use our sisters’ work. Sister Sue did marvelous work.

    Beautiful. I do counted cross stitch, but have never attempted anything that complicated. Kudos to Sr. Susan.

        Dear Florence,

        This cross stitch was created by Sr. Susan Marie Roche, and I will pass your note on to her. I am sure she will be glad to hear from you!

        Peace and all good, Sister Pat

        Thank you so much!
        I remember Sr. Susan speaking of a Sr. Pat often, could that have been you?

        I could say of our Patricia’s, that we are legion!! It probably was not me, because when I entered, Susie was already at Alta Bates in Berkeley. It was surely one of the many other Pats. 🙂

        Sorry. It would have been nice to have found a close link to Sr. Susan

        Please don’t apologize! I’m close enough – in fact across the street. 😉 I’ll talk to her soon, Florence!! Blessings!!

    Beautiful work of art. I am wondering if you are the Sr. Susan Marie Roche I knew @ St. Joseph’s Hospital in Stockton, CA and who then moved on to Alta Bates Hospital in Berkely, CA. Martha & I have been looking for our friend for years. We miss you SSM!
