My Vocation Story by Sister Roberta Fulton, SSMN
- There are so many wonderful events that led me to answer the call to be a
Sister of St. Mary of Namur. I was born in Kingstree, SC and converted to the
Catholic faith in high school. In high school, I helped the sisters teach CCD.
This was an opportunity for me to deepen my faith & love of God. I seemed to be
a born teacher & loved it.

Do You Want to Confess Now or Worry about it Later?
- Throughout scripture, we are reminded
of God's grace and mercy through the performance of miracles. We can recall
Christ's ability to turn water into wine, allowing the lame to walk, the mute to
talk, setting prisoners free, and raising others from the dead. Additionally not
only did Christ heal, renew, restore and revive, but Christ also was given the
authority to forgive sins. Allow me to revisit and share with you what is
written in the Gospel of Matthew 9: 1-7 as a point of reference.

Most Americans Should Consume Less Sodium
- Most of the sodium we consume is in the form of salt, and the vast
majority of sodium we consume is in processed and restaurant foods. Too much
sodium is bad for your health. It can increase your blood pressure and your risk
for a heart attack and stroke. Heart disease and stroke are the leading causes
of death in the United States.
In addition to excess sodium intake, other factors
also influence blood pressure and the risk for heart disease and stroke.
Book of the Month
Introduction to the Devout Life
- Francis de Sales' Introduction to the Devout Life has remained a uniquely
accessible and relevant treasure of devotion for nearly four hundred years. As
Bishop of Geneva in the first quarter of the seventeenth century, Francis de
Sales saw to the spiritual needs of everyone from the poorest peasants to court
ladies. The desire to be closer to God that he found in people from all levels
of society led him to compile these instructions on how to live in Christ.
Francis's compassionate Introduction leads the reader through practical ways of
attaining a devout life without renouncing the world and offers prayers and
meditations to strengthen devotion in the face of temptation and hardship.
