Entered: August 14, 1956

Motto: Led by the Spirit

How quickly the time has gone since my 50th Jubilee in 2009! How blessed the years have been since then--full of joys and moments of deep peace, rich in opportunities to learn new things and grow in unexpected ways, tempered by more frequent experiences of loss and invitations to let go.

What to say at a milestone moment like this? I turn to Shakespeare and Dag Hammarskjold for inspiration. For these past 60 years in Mercy, I say with Shakespeare, "I can no other answer make but thanks and thanks and ever thanks".

As I look to the mystery of the days that lie ahead of me, I pray that I will have the courage to say with Dag Hammarskjold, "For all that has been, Thanks. For all that is to come, Yes!"
