Companions held their annual gathering and day of reflection

On November 11, 2017 Ursulines of Brown County Companions held their annual gathering and day of reflection. The theme of the day was “Justice and Peace Shall Kiss” (Ps. 85): Antidotes for Our World: Civility, Aging, Addiction and Poverty”. Each topic was addressed by an Ursuline Companion or friend. The presentations were followed by a time of silence to reflect on what was heard and more specifically, how each one would be able to be an antidote for our world.

Angela's Promise by Sister Pat Brockman, OSU

Angela for Pat bookNow available in the online store. 

This simple poetic work takes us back to the original hope of St. Angela Merici. Having promised to remain more vividly with her followers after her death, we witness Angela’s movement from the culture of the profound mysticism of medieval 14th Century to the individualism of 15th Century Renaissance. The sweeping changes of time have carried the original hope of Angela throughout the past 500 years. 

In the strength of that vision, Sr. Pat has assured us of Angela’s witness in our own times, the independence of women, a deepened connection to the Church, and the interweaving of women and men at work together in the world. 

Sr. Pat was drawn to do this poem from her research work with many Sisters and her profound love of Angela.
