    Thanks for posting this! Many years to them- and many more sisters!

    Our family has had the privilege of meeting Mother Theodora, Sister Cecilia (then Sr. Julie) & Sister Gabriella (then “just” Jessie) at the Annual Pilgrimage at Mount St. Macrina Monastery…they are lovely, joy-filled brides of Christ! In fact, we just saw Mother at a funeral this past weekend & she invited us to come out to the monastery (Christ the Bridegroom in OH) for a visit & a cook-out. We would love for our eldest daughter to attend one of the girls’/young ladie’s retreats with the Sisters. These Sisters give me much hope for the future of Eastern Catholic monasticism here in the US! God bless Bishop John Kudrick for his support of traditional Eastern monasticism! (Speaking of the funeral, please pray for the repose of the soul of our friend, +John Michael Harvey, who died last week. His cousin is married to Mother’s sister.)
