Before these pictures are out of date, I had better get them on-line! Here it our crew of postulants who are soon to lose one member to the novitiate.
Postulant Phoenix will be clothed in the Holy Habit of our Mother St. Clare this Friday! Stay tuned for pictures of that blessed event to come!
And here is our current novice crew, soon to gain one member, but due on November 21st, feast of the Presentation of Mary, to lose another to the juniorate....
our Sister Laetitia!
Meanwhile, out in the garden, an amazing thing! I was about to pull up this winter squash vine since it is September and that is what you usually do at this time of year. But all of a sudden it took on new life. Now it is taking over the grass that in its turn has taken over the empty spots of the veggie field. Large fruits have been spotted last week, so...Where there is life there is hope! May it be so for the seemingly dead and dying areas of the Church! May we witness a new springtime, even in the approaching winter. It is our job to pray and sacrifice to that end.
