Make me a Channel Card
Make Me a Channel CardITEM Make me a Channel - Sr Dorothy Peace Card PRODUCT CODE MR02F SUITABILITY A card suitable to encourage those who help quietly in so many ways, to say thank you for a kindness or helpfulness received. A card also to encourage those who follow the humility of St Francis of Assisi, especially through example of their actions.
(Note that the suitability given for our Sr Dorothy range of encouragement and care cards is only a suggestion as a card can be suitable for many occasions, dependent on how the wording inside the card relates to the person receiving the card, or the person sending the card) WORDING (Note that the inside of the card is left blank for a persona greeting or message) The wording on the front of this card reads: Make me a Channel of your Peace. The words given inside the card are from Sr Dorothy's collection of prayers and words of encouragement:
If Christ was born in a simple stable
then there is no reason why
he cannot be born over and over again
in the such humble places -
and in the hidden loving hearts
of those unnamed, unknown, people
who live quietly and with
consistent and sustained courage.
Christ is reborn
every time someone commits
an act of kindness and goodness.

- WATERMEAD STORY The original pictures and wordings used on Watermead cards are usually gifted or suggested to us by people who become involved with one of the Watermead Apostolate's activities - retreats, pilgrimages, conferences - or who discover us through our websites or read about us in newspaper/magazine articles. Over the years we have even been gifted original work by customers who come to our shop and centre. SR DOROTHY McGREGOR This card belongs to a series dedicated to Sr Dorothy McGregor of Maundy Relief in Accrington, Lancashire. Sr Dorothy discovered us through our internet shop in 2009 and soon started commissioning a variety of personal encouragement cards for people she was helping, asking that her own very individual prayers and thoughts be included in the designs. She died in May 2013 just after having given Watermead permission to use her wording and prayers in a series of care and encouragement cards. All cards in this series are illustrated with paintings and photographs gifted to Watermead over the years and on this particular card one of our 'Little Saints' makes an appearance. Maundy Relief is a "first port of call" and a "last resort" for people in their local community, helping them practically and emotionally in numerous ways.
