"The Virgin Mary was taken up to the heavenly bridal chamber
where the King of kings is seated on a heavenly throne."
- Antiphon from Vespers of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary
On the feast of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary we celebrate Our Lady being assumed, body and soul, into Heaven where she is fully united to her Creator and Lover of her soul. So too on Sunday did we celebrate the reception of Postulants into the chamber of our community, where each Sister lives with her Divine Spouse.
The period of postulancy (derived from the Latin meaning "to ask") is a time for the Postulant to become familiar with the way of life, customs, spiritualty, and charism of our religious community. Assimilating this life as her own, she draws ever deeper into the chamber of the Heart of Christ, Whose Mother will mold and fashion the Sister into an image of Herself.
We invite you to join us in praying for our new Postulants - that they may be disposed to all Our Lord wishes to do in their lives and hearts and become His Beloved Bride adorned with lovliness, grace, and virtue.
