The Restitution sisters were in Puerto Rico, but the bishop there said the vision calling for them was not of supernatural nature, and therefore couldn't back them. These pix--did they come from a website?

Blessings,
Gemma

We've seen at least one recent community where this has happened, and I had met a lady (years ago) that had to reestablish herself after 10 years when her community disbanded and her vows were dispensed. It was not easy for her at all.

That sounds like an unfortunate situation, but the reality is that every man or woman who has made the personal decision to follow their calling into a new foundation assumes all the risks therein.

Sometimes things happen that are unexpected. Surely we know that this is true from our own lives. Religious foundations are not exempt from such things.

And we must remember that even some canonically-approved religious orders of today were not always approved by their local bishops, or even by Rome. However, in time, these sorts of decisions do change.

In general, I also caution against the possibility of allowing a spirit of suspicion, especially regarding the religious life within communities, to enter into our thinking. Because the truth is, unless we actually live that particular life, we do not know what really goes on inside of the community.

But after all, we should take heart, for the Holy Spirit is the guide of the Church, and nothing shall ever prevail against Her. If an order has canonical approbation, albeit locally, that should be respected.

Can anyone help to identify which order these sisters belong to?

Amy,

Good eye! I do believe that this community was founded in part, to honor the request of St. Faustina for a contemplative religious community dedicated to the Divine Mercy.

Here is their site, though it is only in Polish.

They were founded expressly to fulfill what Our Lord said to St Faustina. The first three or so founding sisters were members of the Sisters of the Merciful Jesus, the apostolic congregation founded by Fr Michał Sopoćko, St Faustina's confessor. So there is a direct line of teaching from Our Lord, a non-apostolic succession!

This convent, or convent-to-be, has something of a reputation for answered prayer and remarkable graces.

Learning Polish is quite within the bounds of possibility for speakers of non-Slavonic languages - there are German and other sisters in Polish congregations. I don't think the red and white of the habits St Faustina described were merely by co-incidence the colours of the Polish flag ...

Wow, those habits are really something! I'm curious as to the meaning of the colours, I did have a look around their website but couldn't see anything about it.

I wonder how long it takes them to get dressed in the morning? The habits are beautiful, but very complicated. It looks like they are hardcore Franciscans with the wooden plank bed and the cement blocks instead of tables. Very interesting.
