Little Sisters and Little Brothers of the Lamb
Today we celebrated Mass with the Little Sisters and Little Brothers of the Lamb at the Little Monastery. We enjoyed lunch and fellowship. We learned about the Little Lambs Dominican roots, how they were founded and how they implement the works inspired by their founder (Sister Marie?). Brother Christof shared with us the experience of beauty and gave us examples of how beauty is brought out in the works of their religious order. Specifically, how a row of garden flowers amongst a background of poverty can lift the heart of a woman experiencing darkness. And how one little beautiful building in a neighborhood can inspire a desire for others to fix their up their properties by cleaning up or some fresh paint. But beauty is so much more than the physical appearance, and we look to see what is being beautified in the interior of those houses, or within our hearts. After all, beauty is the language of our hearts.

Consecrating to Mary, here is the Marian Prayer Group with Fr. Schmitz. Julie Entzeroth consecrated for the first time one year ago, and in THAT time, a new little baby Mary came into the world! In fact, Mary Terese Entzeroth was born on May 18, birthday of Saint Pope John Paul II! How blessed we are to have Mary as the newest member of our Marian Consecration group!
When Father Michael Gaitley, author of Consoling the Heart of Jesus and 33 Days to Morning Glory, recently visited St. Michael the Archangel parish, he shared how Mary and Divine Mercy are changing hearts across the planet, that you and I are the heart and arms of Jesus for others!
