. We have just had 3 nuns here at Canaan for retreat. They filled our house with a positive, joyful, and grateful atmosphere . They seemed to be content with whatever was before them and whatever was happening. I loved their childlike quality of wonderment as they enjoyed nature, quietness, exploring, listening, sharing etc. They bring Christ’s presence wherever they go and as it says in II Tim 2:21 they are “A vessel for honorable use, set apart as holy, useful to the master of the house, ready for every good work.”. Sometimes we may forget that we are His vessels and containers too and that the Master wants to use us to bless others and bring His presence. We are also the aroma of Christ and may others catch the aroma and be drawn to Him….. I can still catch the fragrance left by the nuns!
