From the Poor Clare Colettines TMD

 From the monastery garden (18)

That the trial of your faith, being much more precious than of gold that perishes, though it be tried with fire, might be found unto praise and honour and glory at the appearing of Jesus Christ:

( 1 Peter)


 Dear Little hearts,

What a precious, blessed gift of God is our faith. As you contemplate the beauty of creation, let the various colours yield their message to you.

The Gold of these herbs brought to mind the verse from 1 Peter, and yes our faith will be and is tried in so many ways. We may or may not be called upon to suffer martyrdom, in these difficult time, who can say, but we may well know through intimidation, abuse of others a bloodless martyrdom. Yes, our faith will be tested,  through the circumstances, persons in our lives, through suffering and death. It is a testing, have courage and remain faithful to Him who created you and loves you.

Gold can buy things, faith can attain far, far more, Faith is the Victory that overcomes this world, seek the gold of His Love, and offer Him the gold of obedience.... He is worth it all.
