Today is a day of sorrows not just in the liturgy, but in particular for our Sisters in San Antonio. Years of redevelopment in the neighborhood of our book center have been good for the city, but bad for us. A whole new project has begun recently, progressively choking off access to our beautiful center, just across the park from San Fernando Cathedral. We can't support ourselves at that location with all that going on, so today will be the last day we are open for a while. A team of sisters will stay on while going to the exhibits we have already committed to. They will also try to gather information and insights to help us see the path we need to take for an effective mission in a state where we have had an active presence for 53 years. Please pray for the community and for our many wonderful friends in San Antonio.
