This is the task and purpose of novitiate: that the Sister may learn to allow Christ to be formed in her. In this she unites with Our Lady, in whom Christ was formed most perfectly through her joyful cooperation with the Holy Spirit. Novitiate allows the Sister to practice this same Fiat and Ecce Ancilla Domini so that when Jesus invites, she may respond, "Yes, Lord, behold Thy handmaid ready to do Thy holy will."
The Marian Sisters of Santa Rosa joyfully welcome Sr. Mary Victoria of Our Sorrowful Mother!
Sr. Mary Victoria was clothed on the feast of the Queenship of Mary and is named in honor of Our Savior's triumphant victory over sin and death accomplished by His willing sacrifice on Calvary.
We ask you to join us in praying for our dear Sister, that she may daily increase in holiness and persevere in her holy vocation.
