Our Sisters attended a workshop this weekend on the changes in the Roman Missal, third edition. The workshop was given by Father Gabriel B. O’Donnell, O.P. at the Motherhouse in Baltic and consisted of five one-hour conferences. Not only did we learn the developmental history of the Roman Missal since the early centuries of the Church up to the present, but we were spiritually renewed in our connection and commitment to the liturgy as a means of sanctification for all. We are grateful for the knowledge and inspiration we received from this conference. Approximately 50 Sisters attended. To learn about the changes in the Roman Missal click here.
Behold the Bridegroom comes, let us go out to meet Christ the Lord! Sister M. Gabriela and Sister Maria Teresa made their Final Profession on August 7. We ask the Lord to bless them with perseverance in their vocation. What a blessing for our Congregation and for the Church!
The King’s daughter is all glorious within;
Her clothing is interwoven with gold.
She will be led to the King in embroidered work;
The virgins, her companions who follow her,
Will be brought to You.
They will be led forth with gladness and rejoicing;
They will enter into the King’s palace.
In place of your fathers will be your sons;
You shall make them princes in all the earth.
I will cause Your name to be remembered in all generations;
Therefore the peoples will give You thanks forever and ever.
