Into the Deep!

Saint Joseph Monastery

To all our web savvy friends - Greetings from the cloister!

     We are so excited about this new vocation promotion endeavor - I very well believe we are the first of all the communities of Passionist Nuns throughout the world to have a blog. (Although, I would love to be corrected about that!)

#90 in our Rule & Constitutions states

     The Passionist Nuns, being cooperators with God who chooses and calls whom He wills, strive to encourage vocations by making known the value of the consecrated life and the challenge involved in the following of Christ Crucified, as also through the example of their lives, their prayer and the spoken and written word.

     In your charity, please offer a prayer for us as we "strive to encourage vocations" to Passionist life by casting our net into the deep sea of blogging.

     P.S. I can't forget to extend a special thanks Louisville seminarian Matthew Hardesty (native of Owensboro, KY) who took time away from his retreat in our retreat house to help us become a bit more educated about blogs. God reward you Matthew! And our continued prayers as you seek to be a priest of Jesus Christ. (Visit Matthew's blog:
