Let the sisters and brothers be gentle, peaceful and unassuming, mild and humble, speaking respectfully to all in accord with their vocation.
Be praised, my Lord,
through all Your creatures, especially
through my lord Brother Sun,
who brings the day;
and You give light through him.
And he is beautiful
and radiant in all his splendor!
Of You, Most High,
he bears the likeness.
Sr. Nepomucena used to recount how she always wanted to go away from the city to the country. She was happy when Sr. Margareta took her with her to go begging for the needs of the orphanage during summer vacation. They used to go from village to village and from house to house.
