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!

We all have to give an account before God at the end of life. Let us live this day well in His Presence. All things are passing.

Those who allow themselves to be led by the Spirit understand that placing oneself at the service of the Gospel is not an optional extra, because they are aware of the urgency of transmitting this Good News to others…I assure you that the Spirit of Jesus today is inviting you young people to be bearers of the good news of Jesus to your contemporaries.

—Pope Benedict XVI

My peace I give you, not as the world gives, but as I give you. Do not let your hearts be troubled. Trust in God and trust in Me also.

—Jesus Christ

We should not be afraid to show the world we are Christians. We are called to be the salt of the earth and the light to the nations. It is not because we think we are better than others. It is because we belong to Jesus. Any one who believes in Him will do what He did and live as He lived.
