RSHM Life: Sister Clevie Youngblood, RSHM

Sister Clevie Youngblood, RSHM, Marymount School of New York

in classrooms, on retreats, and in Campus Ministry, and of experiencing this action of the Spirit. Often, I am the one who comes to a fuller knowledge of God and God’s love. I recall a newly commissioned Eucharistic Minister who shared with her schoolmates how the death of a cousin led to a deeper understanding of the Eucharist and the importance of God’s presence in our lives. Such faith sharing made God known in ways that religion classes never could. A visit to the pre-kindergarten to talk about God’s quiet things illustrated how to love God. After mentioning clouds and sleeping babies, one student said, “a turtle” and curled up in the form of a turtle in its shell – a perfect image of being at rest with God. I left in awe of the knowledge of God shared by five year olds.

Loving God is manifest also through loving our neighbor. At Marymount School students and staff alike embrace the numerous opportunities to reach out to others whether in a soup kitchen or a shelter, in New York City or New Orleans, or fundraising on a Ronald McDonald House run or the Cystic Fibrosis Walkathon. Building a community of outreach begins with building a community at school. This recent picture of Big /Little Sisters walking to our Mass of the Holy Spirit says it all. God’s embrace takes many forms.
