The Sisters who renewed their vows on November 27, the feast of Our Lady of the Miraculous Medal, chose the Votive Mass of Mary, Mother of Fairest Love. The texts of this Mass express both the spousal relationship formed by the profession of vows and that aspect of our charism which is the communication of Beauty. As a community, we strive to walk with Our Lady along the via pulchritudinis, the Way of Beauty, which is ultimately Christ, Beauty Infinite and Incarnate.
"In profound adoration of the Most Holy Trinity, and under the patronage of Mary, Mother of the Church, and St. Louis Marie de Montfort..." ~ from the MSSR Vow Renewal Formula
At the end of a Sister's first year of profession, she renews her vows for three additional years. The ritual for the renewal of vows is simple, unadorned with the solemnity and symbols of first profession, yet this profession profoundly embraces the Sister in her totality, expressing the deepening of her spousal bond with Christ and her joyful intention to be His true mirror in all aspects of her life.
O Mary, Mother of Fairest Love, intercede for us, obtain for us all the graces we need to be pleasing to your Divine Son, to be fruitful in our apostolates for His glory, and for perseverance in grace and our vocation!
