Franciscan Sister Sings Her Song in a Summer for 'Sister Water'

GREEN BAY, July 8, 2021 /Christian Newswire/ -- Through Summer 2021 Franciscan Sisters of Christian Charity stream songs celebrating 'Sister Water' as a sacramental element https://fscc-calledtobe.org/2021/07/05/water-from-the-rock-by-franciscan-sister-of-christian-charity/.

Novice Sister Maria Guadalupe Martinez Lopez offers her own song "Water from the Rock" with video illustrating the lyrics.

Like St. Francis, Franciscan Sisters of Christian Charity recognize 'Sister Water' as a precious resource. Throughout our more than 150 years of service in Catholic Education, Parishes and Health Care, we have enjoyed the shimmering streams of the Manitowoc River, the gentle ripples of Silver Lake or the grander waves of Lake Michigan.

Our latest featured 'Sister Water' song, "Water From The Rock," is by one of our newest – Sister Maria Guadalupe Martinez Lopez "I took excerpts from the Old Testament and New Testament and put them together in a poem in my Theology class at Silver Lake College. Sr. Mary Kolbe taught us the different typologies that foreshadowed Christ in the Old Testament. I used those ideas to make my poem for the Final Exam.

"The main theme I wanted to express in this poem/song is how Jesus quenches our thirst and deepest longings. At the same time there is an emphasis on the thirst of Jesus for us. He hears the cry of the poor. As Mother Theresa heard Jesus say "I thirst," we are also called to serve him and hear the cry of the poor."

Franciscan Sisters of Christian Charity serve in Catholic Health Care, Education, Parishes and Campus Ministry outreach in the Southwest, Central and Upper Midwest United States. Learn more about our ministries and vocations at https://fscc-calledtobe.org.
