The world turns on how we perceive one another. We can point to people, famous or not, who have made a difference in our lives. Sometimes, though, it is those who we would least expect, the ones who by their otherness become priceless blessings, who enable us to be our best selves.

Dorothy Day, co-founder with Peter Maurin of the Catholic Worker Movement (which, in the dark days of the Depression, set up hospitality houses to feed the hungry, clothe the naked, and shelter the homeless) saw and acknowledged the innate blessedness in those they encountered.

The Baptismal Covenant challenges us “to seek and serve Christ in all persons…to strive for justice and peace among all people…to respect the dignity of every human being.” In our time together, we’ll consider the implications of such imperatives as we reflect on our call to ministry.

Led by the Rev. Frances Drolet-Smith, the Vocations Coordinator for the Diocese of Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island and an Oblate of SSJD.
