Who is the smiling nun?
Sister Eleanor Klaber, VHM
Thank you. I realize everyone is busy, but I miss the content about the community and history of the community. Any chance we could get a few posts like that each month? It would be something good to look forward to! In the meantime, holding all of you in prayer and hoping you have a fantastic summer... and that you aren't melting too badly.
We appreciate your comment. Unfortunately our community does not currently have any tech-savvy sisters, so we're dependent on others for blog postings. Please continue to keep us in your prayers; you are in ours!
That is a very good explanation, Sister.... and I will hold you all in my prayers for MANY vocations... and at least one who is tech-savvy! I am sure if any of us can help you we'd be happy to do so! I hope & pray the sisters who did this in the past are OK?
Yes, they're fine. Our Lord has called them elsewhere.We're grateful that you lift us up in your prayers, as we do you in ours.God be praised in all His (many times inscrutable) ways!
MONASTICISM. The way of life, characterized by asceticism and self-denial, followed by religious who live more or less secluded from the world, according to a fixed rule and under vows, in order to praise God through contemplation and apostolic charity.I see monasticism at Visitation "Monastery" has found a new expression.
Just once a year: on the Fourth of July, among our kind benefactors
Dear Sisters,I have been struck over the years by how well this blog has shown the many facets of Visitandine spirituality and monastic living. True to the spirituality of Sts. Francis de Sales and Jsne de Chantal you have always shown us how a mixed monastic and active life can be lived. It is a wonderful thing that the Visitation nuns exist so that there IS a place where women with frailer bodies can live out their monastic vocations in a less physically severe setting... just as the founders intended. Many of the earlier posts explained this very clearly, and I am grateful. My love and prayers go out to all of you.
