Two Vestitions in One Year - Blessed be God!
Now...for some super great news...Nora will be leaving us...that's right...one week from today...on the solemnity of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary into Heaven...Nora will depart and Sister ? of the ? will emerge. That's right in one week we will have another joyous vestition! Nora will be clothed in the Passion of Christ and receive her new name. She will embark upon her two-year journey of preparation to make the five Passionist vows.
Dearly beloved, you must know that the main object in wearing black, according to the special inspiration God gave me, is to be clothed in mourning for the Passion and Death of Jesus. For this purpose let us never forget to have always with us a constant and sorrowful remembrance of him.
St. Paul of the Cross
Please rejoice with us! Keep her and her family in your prayers during this special time. She will be in a 3-day retreat Wednesday through Friday. Photos and reflections will be coming! Any guesses as to what her new name and title will be? Now... to those who do know...like her five brothers - don't spill the beans!
