"Do what you have to do with joy and a loving heart."
For those of a more poetic bent, the smell of wood fires and the cheerful hum of the fireplace might betoken the warm hearth by which the Sisters gather daily - the Heart of Christ, burning furnace of charity whereby we draw graces to live truly in unity "of one mind and of one heart", as the Holy Rule of St Augustine says.
As the days grow shorter and the light glows softer each passing day of the season, let us keep our minds fixed ever on the splendor lucis aeternae, the splendour of that eternal light Who is the Son of God Himself, Who lights the lamps of heaven even while pointing our feet ever homeward to our eternal home.
