Just received an interesting comment re: the 20/20 segment about cloistered contemplative Poor Clares in Rosewell, New Mexico and Trappistines in Wrentham, Massachusetts. Many thanks for the kind words.
Want to apologize for failing to post another comment - it got lost in cyper space. But I am grateful that it offered a correction. I mistakenly wrote that the young women interviewed were participating in a 'come and see' experience at the Poor Clares. That is not so. They were visiting the Trappistines
Today we rejoiced in the Ascension of Jesus Christ to His place at the right hand of the Father and anticipate the fulfillment of His promise, the coming of the Holy Spirit on the day of Pentecost. Our Order was founded on the Feast of Pentecost so it is a special day for us.
These days I have been busy preparing our spring newsletter which contains an invitation to our annual Novena in honor of Our Mother of Perpetual Help June 19-27.
