Sister Christine Makowski

I love life!  I love my Benedictine life of Community, prayer and ministry.  Every day I strive to fully embrace the teaching that comes from Psalm 95 and from the Rule of Saint Benedict, “If today you hear God’s voice, harden not your heart.”  That verse challenges me to be attentive, to listen and always to respond with love.  I do hear God’s voice in the voices of those who need my help.

As I look back over a long and fruitful life, I am filled with awe and gratitude.  There are so many people whose lives I have touched and continue to touch and who deeply touch me.  We have taught one another to love, to care, to stretch, to forgive, to grow, and to dare to be. Together, we are becoming the people God is calling us to be.

As a Benedictine woman, my life is rooted in prayer.  I am blessed, I am happy and I reach out to embrace all of God’s expanding creation with love and care.
