"Veni electa...."
"Come, my chosen one...."
  On Saturday, May 13, 2017,
the 100th anniversary of
our Lady's first apparition at Fatima,
one of our novices
made her first profession of vows
as a Poor Clare Colettine Nun.
"Lord, here I am! You have called me;
be it done to me according to Your word."

"We ask you graciously to bless this veil,
the emblem of lowliness of heart...and a
visible mark of our Sister's holy purpose."

"Receive this veil which proclaims that you are
totally given to Christ the Lord and
dedicated in your cloister
to the service of the Church."

"I have sought Him
whom I love with all my heart."
   "Christ has set a mark upon my face,
that I should admit no other lover but Him."
"Come, spouse of Christ, receive the crown which
the Lord has prepared for you from all eternity."
