19 February Reflection Quote

"How is the Society that we so love to be upheld, propagated and extended? Believe me, there is only one way - by the depth and sincerity of our religious spirit." Madeleine Sophie Barat, Circular Letters: xvi, February 1844.

At a time when there is some anxiety about the future of religious life, these words offer comfort. Through them our founder, St Madeleine Sophie Barat, points the way.

– what for you is ‘religious spirit’?
– how might we express ‘religious spirit’ today?
– what might the words ‘upheld’, ‘propagated’ and ‘extended’ mean today?
