The Just Soul
Mary Ward had a special relationship with God, family and others. This prepared her for what was to come in her journey to pursue her call ‘to this other thing’; she learned to refer all to God as her point of reference. God was at the center of her response to her call.
Sincerity for Mary Ward was expressed in the words “being such as we appear and appear such as we are”. It means living an integrated life that is honest and true, simply put: not wearing any masks.
Justice was a value that constantly invited Mary Ward to right relationships, and it must have flown directly from her disposition to refer all to God in freedom. As a result, she undertook with great commitment, all forms of good works.
For Mary Ward living the Just Soul brought her ‘indescribable joy’. A just soul refers all to God, endeavours to live in right relationships at all times and lives sincerely, just as she appears, leading to a state of great inner joy. The fruit of this is rendering joyful service to God and to humanity.

In recent years the Christian churches have celebrated a Season of Creation through September, culminating in the feast Francis of Assisi on October 4. Just as we celebrate the seasons of Lent and Advent, the Season of Creation invites us into the deeper mysteries of our faith through prayer, deeper immersion in creation and action.
