Today, October 10, our dear Sr. Maria of the Sacred Heart, whom we fondly call " Sr. Mieke", was fetched by our Divine Bridegroom and Our Blessed Mother, in a very intimate encounter early in the morning. She radiated peace, joy and serenity... As we laid her mortal remains for viewing, a smile was painted on her face. She is now enjoying eternal bliss with Jesus, Mother Mary, St. Joseph, all the angels and Saints! She will celebrate with them on Sunday, 13 October, her 83rd birthday!
Her funeral will take place on Wednesday, October 17. More details will still be announced later...
Paraliturgy in the Novitiate in the evening of Oct 1
On Oct 1, 2013, feast of S. Therese, our junior-professed novice, Sr. Marie Paul Therese, made her second renewal of Vows in the hands of Reverend Mother Prioress, after the Holy Mass. May we recommend her to your holy prayer that she may persevere in this contemplative life in Carmel to which God has called her.
In the evening of the same day, the community were invited to the Novitiate for a simple paraliturgy, wherein we shared with one another, how Little Therese practiced the different virtues during her lifetime especially in Carmel.
