|Blessing of the Scapular|
Sunday, May 13, 2012 was the big day for Sister Mary Isabel of the Angels. At a very special Mass on that day, Sister pronounced her vows of Poverty, Chastity, and Obedience, in the presence of Fr. Mark Padrez, celebrant, many of the Dominican Brothers, her monastic community, and many friends and family.
In his homily, Fr. Mark noted how very fitting were the Scripture readings on the Sixth Sunday in Easter time for the occasion of a profession. The subject of the readings was love and friendship. Father highlighted the fact that the religious life is an intense friendship with God. He mentioned many of the qualities of friendship and the fact that a friend is always with us whether in our joys or sorrows, our confusion and pain or our successes and delights, and emphasized the need to spend quality time with our Divine Friend, and when we fail to do this, we deprive ourselves of grace filled moments.
