The Powerful Beauty of a Vocation



Today is the feast day of St. Brigid of Ireland and so the feast day of my sister Sr. Brigid Mary, MICM. Sr. Brigid professed her vows the day after Rebekah was born September 7th, 2005. This is a picture of Sr. Brigid and her niece Rebekah on Rebekah's baptism day. This was also the first time I had seen Sr. in her black veil. (previously she had worn the white of the novice). Before Sr. Brigid took her religious name she was known to the world as Rebecca and that is why we named our little Rebekah after her. We are so proud of her and know she will be a powerful example for our children. If you are interested in reading more about the vocation of a Slave to the Immaculate Heart of Mary you can do so here.

St. Brigid, pray for us.

Awww.....what a beautiful picture! And so amazing that your sister chose the religious life. May God bless her, and all of your family!

Perhaps we should all choose religious lives, some of us married, some of us single, hopefully following God's plan.
