When the days get darker

The convent church

It is November and the days are getting shorter.
Now there are few bright days that we enjoy as best we can.
We keep in touch with God just like before,
but with a slightly different rhythm in the breath.
That is what is important,
and the darkness becomes full of hope and love.

We can say like Saint Bridget:
"Lord, give my heart peace."

Saint Elisabeth said:
"To keep the soul in perpetual contact with God is the real art of prayer.
Thank you, my Lord, for all the years that have passed, for everything you gave me!
Grant that I still see you in all the events of my life and in all people!
Oh my God, I thank you for everything you give me. I thank you for what you take.”

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.

The Lord is near to us

Advent wreath

It is Advent, and we want to prepare ourselves spiritually so that our King can enter our hearts.
 
We wait for the Lord to come with goodness. We will share that goodness with others. We give gifts to each other and we wish each other a Merry Christmas. During this time, we try to spend more time together. We shall rejoice because the Lord is near, and be near each other.

In Advent, we will look around and try to do something good for others so that they can experience the goodness of the Lord.

We would like to share with you this text from James 5: 7-10:

Now be patient, brothers, until the Lord's coming. Think of a farmer: how patiently he waits for the precious fruit of the ground until it has had the autumn rains and the spring rains!

You too must be patient; do not lose heart, because the Lord's coming will be soon.

Do not make complaints against one another, brothers, so as not to be brought to judgement yourselves; the Judge is already to be seen waiting at the gates.

For your example, brothers, in patiently putting up with persecution, take the prophets who spoke in the Lord's name.



The Bridgettine Sisters wish you a blessed Advent time!
