Gospel of John – WCSS Letters

During my years as a facilitator for our Women’s Catholic Scripture study, I partnered with my dear friend, Karen. Together we wrote letters each week to the ladies in our small group. These letters were intended to remind the ladies of any important information about the chapter and to give them our reflections on the material we were studying for the week. The letters are presented in this section. The even numbered letters were written by Karen while I wrote the odd numbered ones.

As I read over these letters and those written by my friend Karen and me to our small groups in WCSS, I am amazed at the beauty and wisdom that I have seen. I am quite sure that the wisdom and kindness in the letters are a result of God’s Holy Spirit working through His children Karen, and Franciene. For my own part I do not speak this way as I see in the letters. The love that shows through the words can only come from our Heavenly Father.
