Priscilla Wood, OP, was featured in the March 30 edition of the Dubuque (IA) Telegraph Herald in an article titled, “A state of being: Learn how to increase your contentment with these steps.” Priscilla said, “Contentment can seem like a passive stance, but I think it’s the opposite. Finding contentment is work. It takes some serious reflection and a good, hard look at one’s life.” She said contentment doesn’t come from having more. “Contentment implies gratitude for what already is, without frustration for what is not. To be more content, one must have . . . moments of silence in one’s day for self-reflection . . . and prayer.” Click here to honor this Sister.
