Why sisters should swim.....

why sisters should swim 160x160Once, I was swimming at the local pool, meandering up and down the slow lane doing breast-stroke.

Unwrapping the Gift of St Ignatius

iggy 160

Today (July 31) is the feast of St Ignatius of Loyola. He is one of the ten saints that we as MGL Sisters take as our patrons.

Here are just four of them – note to reader - this blog is a little longer than usual, but St Ignatius has so much to offer us that I felt it necessary to share each one of these gifts with you…..
