10 Minute Daily Retreat - Read the Daily Gospel with a prayerful heart.Re: Melanie Edwards MGL Sister (No.78)
Melanie Edwards is a writer for the 10 Minute Daily Retreat. Today she is taking Perpetual Vows as a Sister with the Missionaries of God's Love Sisters.
We remember to pray for her today, giving thanks for her life.
'I thank my God every time I remember you, constantly praying with joy in every one of my prayers for all of you, because of your sharing in the gospel from the first day until now. I am confident of this, that the one who began a good work among you will bring it to completion by the day of Jesus Christ (Philippians 1:3-6)
'My name is Melanie Edwards and I am a sister with the Missionaries of God’s Love, a group of sisters who have experienced the love of Jesus in a personal way, leading them to be passionate about spreading the love of God, particularly to young people, and those on the margins of society.
I have been involved in ministry with people of all ages in parishes, youth groups and prison. One of the greatest privileges in my life is witnessing people encounter God in new and life-changing ways.
I enjoy study and learning more about my faith, and I love finding creative ways to share this with others.'
