Photos of Sr. Lucia Marie’s Vestition Ceremony

Where has the time gone!?  Last week I put together our upcoming spring newsletter and hence, everything else was put on the back burner.  Here are those long-awaited photos of the Vestition and Naming of our novice, Sr. Lucia Marie.

   A religious habit, because it is blessed, is a sacramental – an instrument of God’s grace to the one who wears it and to those who see the religious. Wow. What a privilege to wear this garment – to live a life worshiping, serving and loving the Lord in holy attire. (cf. 1 Chronicles 16:29)

 “The Daughters of the Passion, not only by their habit, but much more so in their heart, in their mind and in their labors, should continually mourning for our Crucified Lord, and anoint His Most Holy Wounds by the continual exercise of every virtue, since this is the purpose of the Institute.”

~ Saint Paul of the Cross

  2. Sr Lucia Marie makes a beautiful Bride of Christ! My question is when does the novice cut her hair? The topic was brought up in your photos. Is it done as part of the vestition or after the fact? God Bless and thank you very much for answering my question.
