Final Daily Reflection

Friday, May 20, 2016
A final daily reflection from Sr. Clara Frances on May 19, 2016. Continuing the healing ministry of Jesus Yesterday, there was a ceremony within Presence Health which celebrated the turning over of the canonical responsibility for Presence Health from Five sponsoring Congregations to a newly created single sponsor that is legally known as a Public Juridic Person and is titled Presence Health Ministries. A representative of the five sponsoring congregations called the new PJP members to take an oath of stewardship with these words: ďThe Participating Congregations whose heritage we reviewed have entrusted Presence Health Ministries with the sacred responsibility of furthering the healing ministry of Jesus in the Church through the canonical stewardship of the ministries of Presence Health. We ask that you continue to guide this ministry, which is a participation in the healing mission of Jesus with fidelity and creativity. The future of this ministry lies in your hands and the hands of the persons you will help form to become responsible for leading Presence Health Ministries into the future. I now invite you to recite the Canonical Oath as Members of a Pontifical Public Juridic Person.Ē The eight members of the new Public Juridic Person spoke the canonical Oath and we ended the ceremony by singing: Surely the Presence of the Lord is in this place. I can feel Godís mighty power and Godís grace. I can hear the brush of angelsí wings; I see glory on each face. Surely the presence of the Lord is in this place. This is a big change for Presence Health and I am taking this as an occasion for a change for the Sisters of the Resurrection web page as well. Since the creation of our web page there has been a reflection each day. This is the last time that there will be a daily reflection. Thank you for your participation. May God continue to bless you and yours and may your life always witness the presence of the Risen Lord.
