In our hearts are kindness


Kindness is a gift that we receive from the Holy Spirit.
We must work with ourselves to find the good things in our lives. How many opportunities have we not? Put everything in the Lord's hands completely natural, and then we will get rest.
The good experiences are of great help in the trials in our lives. When we bear our cross with kindness, it becomes easier step-by-step. It is true that it can be painful, but Jesus met someone on the road who helped. We need to be humble, so others can help us. Sometimes we have to be good with ourselves.
Kindness makes us better every day. It is a taste of heaven!
It is a gift from God, which we share with our neighbour, and we get the good return.

I like to share a testimony written by a Swedish novice:

"In May 1932 I came to Rome, to the house of Holy Bridget as a postulant in the historic house that mother Elisabeth had bought back to the new branch of Bridgettines. Mother Elisabeth manifested all the qualities one founder of a religious order should have. She had an open and tolerant mind; she had a heart full of warmth and affection. She was very charming and had beautiful dark eyes full of kindness and compassion. She was reserved, but always fair. Her voice was deep and melodious, and she had a captivating smile. How many fights she had to fight, how many sufferings, she had suffered, our beloved mother".

From Aldo Maria Valli: The girl who sought God.
The life of Maria Elisabeth Hesselblad.

We see how the postulant so nicely describes Holy Mother Elisabeth.

Holy Mother Elisabeth has learnt us to be humble in our lives,
so we can do good things.
She said it is humbleness that lead us to holiness.

Når jeg ikke ser den.

Når jeg går sakte, sakte ...

Når vi er i en vanskelig tid.

Når jeg går forbi noe som hindrer.

Når jeg lærer av andre.

Når alt går bra.

Når jeg velger den rette veien.

Når Gud hjelper oss å finne, 
den rette veien i våre liv.

Herre, kan du være med oss ...

Herre, vi vil være som blomster som åpner seg og sprer vellukt.
Slik vil vi selv åpne våre hjerter til Ditt lys. Lyset gir nåde.


I forbindelse med festen for Hellige Birgitta 23. juli.

Vi ber med Birgittas ord:


Vis meg veien.

Kom snart og lys opp i min natt!

Som en døende lengter,

Slik lengter jeg etter deg.

Si til min sjel,

at intet du tillater, er uten håp.

Å, Jesus, Guds sønn.

Taus sto du foran dine dommere.

Gi meg å tie inntil jeg har besinnet meg,

på hva jeg skal si og hvordan jeg skal tale.

Vis meg veien, og gjør meg villig til å gå videre.

Så oppfyll da min lengsel og vis meg veien.

Jeg kommer til Deg som den sårete kommer til legen.

Herre, gi mitt hjerte ro.
