Earlier this week I had the opportunity to spend an afternoon with our Ursuline sisters at Francis Place, fp-front-bldga skilled care facility where our infirm sisters live. I picked up Sr. Ursula at Nazareth and the two of us drove down for a visit. It was a perfect late-summer day. Sr. Susan gathered the sisters and we all went out to the patio to admire the beauty of nature, drink lemonade, and enjoy one another’s company. We shared news of recent activities, updates on Ursulines around the world, and stories from the past that remind us of our enduring bonds of unity. St. Angela’s counsel came alive francis-place_2016among us: “Take care to have your daughters come together from time to time in a place you think best . . . so that, together like this, they might also meet each other as loving sisters, talking over spiritual matters, rejoicing together, and encouraging one another . . .” (8th Legacy)
