I'm Sr. Helena of Mary. I'm a Carmelite Sister for the Aged and Infirm. I live in Germantown, NY. with my Community. My blog is called "Salt of the Earth" because that is what Jesus asked his disciples to be. I hope I meet many friends here and witness to the beauty of our Catholic Faith and the love of God!

"I went afflicted before an image of Our Lady and besought her with many tears to be my mother. It seems to me that, although I did this in simplicity, it helped me. For I have found favor with this sovereign Virgin in everything I have asked of her and in the end she has drawn me to herself."

St. Teresa of Jesus

July 23- Memorial of Our Lady of Grace

July 22- Feast of St. Mary Magdalen

"Mary Magdalen, in spite of her past, paid no heed to the crowds of men, prominent as well as unknown, at the banquet. She did not consider the opportuneness of weeping and shedding tears in the presence of our Lord’s guests. Her only concern was to reach Him, for whom her soul was already wounded and on fire, without any delay and without waiting for another more appropriate time."- Saint John of the Cross
Any time is a good time to return to the Mercy of God- Me

It seems the world has become such a sad place to be! Thank God that we are just passing through this dark valley of tears. Our true home is with God!

Attachment to power, wealth, sex and any other created things is like a web of lies that traps the soul and renders it incapable of doing and following the Will of God.
