Travel Journal
  • Our flight arrives in Colorado and what's this? Rain? Yep, for many hours, but it doesn't dampen our spirits!
  • Sister Denise Ann Clifford takes us to dinner and then gets us settled in at Loretto Center. Awesome hospitality. 
  • As we're setting up for the podcast, we're also doing a Facebook live video and comment with peeps from around the world. 
  • During the podcast, our guest sisters Maureen McCormack and Cathy Mueller talk about a traditional Loretto prayer: “We give you glory, thanks and praise. Oh bless our works and guide our ways.”
  • As we head to the airport this morning, the sun is shining and we can see snowcaps on the mountains. Truly beautiful.
