March 10, 2019: First Sunday of Lent
Preaching for the First Sunday of Lent, Sheila Kinsey, FCJM, offers a reflection that encourages to consider Jesus' temptation in the desert and to reflect upon our own desert journeys: "We are to become the presence of God for others. In our lives, we will face temptations, but God is there to guide us so that we don’t fall into sin."
Sr. Sheila Kinsey, a member of the Franciscan Sisters Daughters of the Sacred Hearts of Jesus and Mary (FCJM), is the Executive Co-Secretary for the Justice, Peace and Integrity of Creation (JPIC) Commission of the Union of Superior Generals (USG) and International Union of Superior Generals (UISG). She was appointed to the position in 2015, upon completion of her term as general councilor for her congregation in Rome. She is actively involved in issues related to poverty, human rights, refugees and migrants, anti-trafficking, peacebuilding, environment, sexual abuse and collaboration, and currently serves as the Coordinator of the UISG Campaign: Sowing Hope for the Planet.
