On this wonderful solemnity of the Immaculate Conception, our friends the Dominican Nuns of Summit, NJ have clothed a new novice in the habit, and in religion her name will be:
The pictures are lovely (the new sister is glowing and the whole community seems joyfilled), and the comments section is informative.
In her first monastic Advent and Christmas season, the former Sr. Carri takes the names of the two women who remained with Christ in his most difficult hour, when the men had run away. How good!
May God bless Sr. Mary Magdalene and bring to completion the good he has begun in her. And may the whole novitiate persevere in their vocations.
I’m hoping to visit Summit sometime next year. It will be wonderful to meet them, and to pray in their beautiful chapel, on the public side, of course.
