Finally - Photo of Aspirants
Sunday, August 28 Ruth and Olivia received their small Passion sign pin and officially entered the 3-month aspirancy program. They received their pin during Vespers of that Sunday.
The following was the reading for Vespers that evening - how appropriate!
READING 2 Thessalonians 2:13-14 We are bound to thank God for you always, beloved brothers and sisters in the Lord, because you are the first fruits of those whom God has chosen for salvation, in holiness of spirit and fidelity to truth. He called you through our preaching of the good news so that you might achieve the glory of our Lord, Jesus Christ.
and the RESPONSORY Our Lord is great, mighty is his power. - Our Lord is great, mighty is his power. His wisdom is beyond compare, - mighty is his power. Glory to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit, - Our Lord is great, mighty is his power.
Indeed His wisdom is beyond compare!
Please keep Ruth and Olivia in your prayers as they and we continue to discern God's plan if it is indeed his will for them to be future Passionist Nuns.
