Birthday Goodness and Kindness: Sister Rita

Making known the goodness and kindness of Jesus, our Savior, is vital to our mission as Sisters of the Divine Savior. As Salvatorian Sisters celebrate their next year of life, they reflect on the impact of goodness and kindness on their lives and communities.

Reflection by Rita Vogelsang, SDS
Portage, Wisconsin

I learned the goodness and kindness of Jesus at a young age. While attending prep school for four years in Milwaukee, my parents tried to make my birthday special even though they didn’t live near-by. Every year, my mother would send me a box of homemade divinity fudge. It was a simple gift but to know she took time out of her day to make me a birthday gift meant the world to me. Acts of goodness and kindness do not need to be grand; they just need to be from the heart.
