Our “2nd” First Profession
We’re back to share our excitement for the “second” big event for our Carmel this year: The First Profession of Sr. Josefina Rose of Jesus! This will happen just a few days from now on Saturday, September 10th at 10:00 a.m. in our monastery Chapel.Sr. Josefina Rose is now on her private retreat of silence and solitude here in the cloister. She is preparing her heart for a deeper commitment to Jesus, her Bridegroom. She will make three vows to our Lord of poverty, chastity, and obedience. These evangelical counsels will allow her to participate more intimately in Jesus’ own life. He will lead and guide her in the Carmelite way given us by our “holy parents” St. Teresa of Jesus and St. John of the Cross.
All this can only be done through GRACE, which Jesus promises to supply generously at every moment of her life. We ask your prayers for Sr. Josefina Rose of Jesus to respond whole-heartedly to her special calling in and for the Church.
