Fragments of Wisdom

Wisdom Pieces: Fragments of the Wisdom of Mary Frances Clarke

by Sister Mary Frances Reis, BVM

These fragments are pieces of wisdom drawn from the sparse writings of BVM founder Mary Frances Clarke—a woman who lived the Word all of her life and whose words reflect the fire of that Word.

You are invited to savor these words, inhaling their power and energy.


  • Gently come into the quiet
  • Breathe slowing a simple mantra of your own
  • Read the selection several times
  • Allow it to touch your imagination and heart
  • Be still
  • Close your time of meditation by asking:
    What was Mary Frances Clarke saying?
    What meaning do her words have for me today?

Mary Frances Clarke's Fragments of Wisdom

New Beginnings

The Cross
is a good sign
to begin with,
have courage
and confidence
in God.
