The readings for this Fifth Sunday in Ordinary Time show how we enflesh or manifest or make plain-and clear the eternal Word, Jesus Christ, to others through our conscious and concerted efforts at evangelization.

All praise be yours, our God, our All, for your great presence and your love. We greet you, eucharistic Lord; we worship you and give you thanks. All praise be yours, O Lord our God, who call us to lament the loss of all that once was cause for joy for you our comfort now will be. All praise be yours, O Lord our God, The Father, Son, and Spirit, one, who wraps us in eternal love and give us holiness of life.

For the Month of February
We must attend all the more to what we have heard, so that we may not be carried away. For if the word announced through angels proved firm, and every transgression and disobedience received its just recompense, how shall we escape if we ignore so great a salvation? Announced originally through the Lord, it was confirmed for us by those who had heard.

The Franciscan Sisters of Chicago is a congregation of Catholic women living the Gospel life and dedicated to serving others for 120 years. We serve the people of God through works prompted by our charism: care for children, the sick, the infirm, and the elderly; and pastoral and social services.

The Franciscan Sisters of Chicago have adapted to the changing needs of society and expanded and refocused its ministry to respond to the changing needs of those served. The ability and need to serve continues to evolve and we are responding with new ministries in the areas of affordable housing, home health, hospice, and various community benefit services.

Guided by its Franciscan spirit, The Franciscan Sisters of Chicago celebrate life and are committed to joyful, compassionate service.
