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!

When I commit a fault that makes me sad, I know very well that this sadness is a consequence of my infidelity, but do you believe that I remain there? Oh, no! I’m not so foolish! I hasten to say to God: God, I know I have merited this feeling of sadness, but let me offer it up to you just the same as a trial that You sent me through love. I’m sorry for my sin, but I’m happy to have this suffering to offer to You.-
