Devotions from the Visitation Sisters: A Week With Sr. Mary Roberta

As I re-read and remember from Mass this Sunday's Gospel from the seventh chapter of St. Mark (1-8, 14-15, 21-23), I see that it challenges me to look at the difference between "traditions" (small t) which are "habits" and the Church's Tradition (capital T), which is the accumulated wisdom given the Church by the Holy Spirit through the ages. Are my small-t traditions bringing me closer to my Lord, Jesus Christ in His Body, His Church, which our founder St. Francis de Sales calls "the pillar of truth"? If they aren't, it's time for me to change them!

Sr. Mary Roberta Viano, VHM
