IRL Regional Meeting

The Second Vatican Council stated that the Holy Eucharist is “the source and summit of the Christian Life” (Lumen Gentium, no. 11). As we prepare for the revised edition of the Roman Missal, due to be introduced on the first Sunday of Advent, it is good to be reminded that “an indispensable means of effectively sustaining communion with Christ is assuredly the Sacred Liturgy” (Vita Consecrata, no. 95).

In the past forty years there has been much written on the Holy Eucharist and many changes made in how the Church celebrates the Sacred Mysteries.  This year’s regional meeting will offer reflections on the vital importance of the Sacred Liturgy in the Church’s life and mission. Special emphasis will be given on how Divine Worship relates to the consecrated life in living the evangelical counsels and serving the needs of others.

Among the selected speakers will be Mother Marie Julie, SCMC.  The title of her conference is: The Sacred and Divine Liturgy: Intimate Longing for God. Everyone—clergy, religious and laity—is welcome to attend this day of spiritual renewal, reflection and affirmation of the consecrated life. The meeting will be held on Saturday, November 12, 2011 at the Mission Church—Lower Parish Hall Basilica of Our Lady of Perpetual Help Boston, MA.

Earth is Linked to Heaven

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.

Final Profession Day

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!

Psalm 45:13-17

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.
