Reflective Prayer: Presence to Earth
Judith Moroney rsm, Paula Anamani rsm, Cheryl Connelly rsm (Aotearoa New Zealand)

Come journey with me
A journey of love
Deep within the heart 
Of our Mother Earth 

Feel the warmth of her love
Feel the pain within her heart
Listen to the cry,
The cry of the earth...

Paula Anamani rsm migrated from Samoa to New Zealand in the mid 1980’s. She worked and lived in Aotearoa before she joined the Congregation of Nga Whaea Atawhai o Aotearoa Sisters of Mercy New Zealand in 1995.  In 2003, she was fortunate to go back to Samoa and worked in Mercy schools there for 10 years. It was the most inspiring, and lifegiving experience for her. She was there when the deadly tsunami hit Samoa in 2009, a sad year in the history of Samoa. She returned to New Zealand, where she is currently working as a Counsellor and Family Social Worker for the Blind and Low Vision New Zealand. She is an MGP coordinator for Aotearoa New Zealand.
