Sister Mary Therese Renews Her Vows
Sr. Mary Therese of the Divine Mercy, our temporary professed sister, renewed her vows for one year on Wednesday, January 27, 2021.
This is a milestone in Sister's vocational journey, so we had to celebrate a little!
One of our sisters made Baked Alaska in three different flavors...
...and it tasted as good as it looked!
We had a delicious meal in the community room, with the rare privilege of talking while we ate (we usually listen to a CD or something read to us).
Since Cor Orans, the new document from Rome detailing rules for cloistered living, specifies the renewal of vows annually for three years after the initial three-year period of temporary vows, we may be doing this a lot in the future. But for now, we'll concentrate on the joy of this present moment. Please continue to pray for Sr. Mary Therese as she lives her vows for another year, and pray for us, too, that we may all be faithful to the Dominican vocation God has given each one of us.
