  SacredHeart.gif SR. MARIA THERESA - FIRST VOWS  

On December 8, 2012, Sr. Theresa pronounced her first vows as a religious of the Visitation of Holy Mary during a beautiful Mass in honor of the Immaculate Conception. Archbishop Thomas J. Rodi was the main celebrant, assisted by Fr. Methodius Telnack, OCSO, of the Monastery of the Holy Spirit in Conyers, Georgia, and Fr. Dan Good of St. Mary's Church in Mobile. Fr. Methodius, who has been a friend of Sister for over fifty years, gave the homily, highlighting significant moments in Sister's life that culminated in her call to the monastery.

During the ceremony which followed the homily, the superior, Mother Margaret Mary Rumpf, received Sister's vows to live in poverty, chastity, and obedience for three years, and then Sister received the cross of profession, a copy of the Constitutions of the Order, and her religious name, Maria Theresa, which is also her baptismal name. Her five daughters, with husbands and children attended the profession and visited with Sister and the community in the parlor afterward.

Pictures were taken by Sister Maria Theresa's family and Larry Wahl of the Catholic Week.

Sisters of St. Francis of Perpetual Adoration on the first day of May. It's hard to see, but one of the sisters told us to throw fallen petals into the air for the picture :hehe2:

It begins


"J'ai besoin de toi'"


"I need you"  presumably Jesus addressing Himself to the listener.


I can't make out all of the French - I've lost my ear for it a little, but it is about the Religious Life on the mountain, mentions light, prayer (for the world), the beauty of the dessert,

and asks us to listen to the call.
