In the silence of the retreat, I began to understand God’s unconditional love for me through his persistence, companionship, and guidance.

Monday is NUNDAY! And today we have a local nun from Sylvania, Ohio, right by us in Toledo! Sister Jane Mary Sorosiak, OSF, is a Sister of Saint Francis and an artist.
