Earth-shaking experience...

     Did you feel that earthquake a couple Fridays ago? Those of us here in the Midwest sure did!


     Later during Midmorning prayer we had the holy joy of watching Shannon receive the small Passion Sign pin from Mother Catherine Marie and officially join our other aspirant Sharon on a journey of discernment. Yes, their names occasionally cause some confusion! Please keep them in your prayers as they seek the Lord’s face and the fulfillment of His will.

     45-minutes later - an aftershock rocked us again…two aspirants - who knew it would be such an earth-shaking event. When someone responds positively to the Lord's promptings to give a total, out-pouring gift of self we are all closer to conquering the world through Love.

Mother's Gaudeamus day

     Shannon is from Houston and is so grateful for your prayers. Our other aspirant Sharon is from North Carolina; she is one of 12 children and has been with us since February. They both extend greetings to all their family and friends and appreciate the prayers that so many of you have offered on their behalf ...keep them up!

     By the way - St. Emygdius (Martyr ~ A.D. 304) is the patron saint of earthquakes... perhaps it would be wise to cultivate a friendship with him?
