"Let us pray to Holy Mary for our Sister on her feast. Let us ask our loving Mother, grace and blessing to increase, that our Sister may grow closer to the Heart of Christ our King, and her holy Patron guide her, ever by the Cross to cling..." - MSSR Feastday Song
The feastday Sister's place in refectory is decorated with an image of her patron, a candle, a little bouquet of flowers. Little notes have a way of appearing in unlikely places, and the convent is pervaded with a sense of ill-suppressed anticipation, while the Sister is gently but firmly excluded from daily tasks like dishes and anywhere there might be a flurry of top secret preparations. At dinner, the Sister shares about her holy patron, providing the Community with spiritual food while we enjoy the feastday fun.
