We're Going on a Nun Hunt!


Piccoli Fiori JMJ

Recommended Posts

Okay, I've been looking around and I found what looked like a super nice awesome community. Yeah, I'm just looking around just for fun, just to see all the habits and the different pictures and such. But I have found at least 2 (as of now) that I have not found or seen very much on!
One community is that I met one of the Sisters at WYD and she was from Poland and I didn't quite catch what she said, but I knew to had to do with the Passion and the Cross. I found the Sisters of The Passion and Cross in OH, but they are like SSPX and a capuchin community. I don't think the Sister I met was in anyway Capuchin. She had a black tunic and veil and a thin red cinture and a funny little thing at the top of her veil...
The other community was when I was searching through CMSWR for communities and I found one and I have not been able to find any further info on them! They used to have a website, but it is down....

That's a picture of one of the Sisters...

Any help?

Hello!

I think I may be able to help you. That looks to me like a Sister of the Congregation of Our Lady of Mercy. [url="http://www.sisterfaustina.org/"]http://www.sisterfaustina.org/[/url] They have strong Polish links and the habit looks very much like the picture

(there's no passion and the cross though, so maybe that was part of her religious name.???)

Blessings! Heard only good things about these sisters!

SAdly, that was not them... they didn't have something projecting ( :lol: )from the veil like that... It was more of a raised dome kind of deal...

They are usually contemplatives though...

Guess what?!?!?

My household at Steubenville loved these Sisters! I had many good times at their retreat house!

They are really cool.

They gave us a special deal where we had household retreat at their summer retreat/novitiate house for really cheap.

They are the Sister Servants of the Most Sacred Heart. In America, their motherhouse is in Cresson, PA. Their charism is very similar to the charism of the Sisters of St. Francis of the Martyr St. George. In the US, they teach and are nurses (I think). Their founder, St. Joseph Sebastian Pelczer, was a bishop in Poland who was recently canonized. He was really cool and very youth oriented, and his miracles for canonization were pretty cool. Also, the Sisters who cared for JPII's household were from this order.

I'm on lunch break, so i don't have much time to write the funny stories, but maybe later!

They are a great order of Sisters, though! I recommend them. They are low profile like my Sister Servants (of the Eternal Word), and I love to tell people to look into them. I think ThyHolyLove Emily may have also communicated with them, too.

Now to find some info on the Sister I met from Poland! Thanks though! I knew the name of the Sister Servants of the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus, I just forgot it in my original post... now I want to find the first community I described...

It sounds like Saint Faustina's Order to me, but I could be wrong. I believe Jesus' instruction on how their habits were to look included a red cincture... the Polish would be a good indication that they are her Order; not the Order she was a member of, but the Order she was supposed to found.

But I remember distinctly something mentioned about the Passion and the Cross when I asked about her community... It would have been cool if it was St. Faustina's community, but I thought they were supposed to be a contemplative/cloistered community?

If it is [url="http://www.sisterfaustina.org"]St Faustina's order[/url] heres a link! Since I started reading "Divine Mercy in my soul" I've thought they looked AWESOME. (but not me :P: )

I think I am right because of the habit. Definitely Sister Faustina's order.

They do have a website. sisterfaustina.org

The thing is the veil though... It is definatly not the same at all...
It was like she had one of those cardboard hot-dog "boats" at her forehead, at where the veil was attached...

I know hot-dog "boat" is not the best way to describe it, but that is what it most closely resmebled....
