Today is, in my opinion, one of the highest feasts of the Church. I am sure the Blessed Trinity does not feel slighted - she is after all his most blessed work. To honor our Lady is to honor the Father who loved her, the Son from whom she took our nature and the Spirit who made her his most pure spouse.
Granted, the feast does have some serious personal meaning: it is traditionally the Profession and Reception Day in our American Province. And today is no exception. Two Sisters will profess First Vows and three postulants will be received into the novitiate. It is a day of rejoicing, commitment and glory.
This post is brief because I hope to do a bit more after the feastday Mass. Pictures always tell the story more easily than words.
Stay tuned...and pray for our young Sisters.
