Sr Faustina Maria's Final Profession

Feast of Our Lady of Fatima and Our Lady of the Most Blessed Sacrament ~ Sr. Faustina Maria of the One Holy Sacrifice professed her Final Vows at Emmanuel on May 13, 2018

 

In joy and thanksgiving,

Sr. Faustina Maria

processes into the chapel,

preparing her heart for the

Holy Sacrifice of the Mass,

celebrated by Fr. Gentry,

and eager to make her profession

of Final Vows to her Divine Spouse.

"The daughter of the king is clothed with splendor, her robes embroidered with pearls set in gold. She is led to the King..."

 

"Dear Sister,

what does your heart desire?"

 

"My heart's desire

is to vow my life to God

as a Sister of Children of Mary."

 

Sister Faustina Maria lies prostrate

in the shape of the cross,

uniting herself spiritually

to Our Crucified Lord,

as we implore the intercession of Heaven

in the Litany of the Saints

for our dear Sister and her perseverance.

 

 

"Keep watch with love, wise virgins, with your lamps alight. See, the Bridegroom comes; go out to welcome Him."

 

Sister Faustina Maria

of the One Holy Sacrifice

approaches

the King in the Tabernacle

and kneels before Mother

to make her

final profession of Vows.

 

 

“Mother, I ask you to accept my promise to live a chaste life out of profound love for Jesus, the Spouse of my soul, to live a life of poverty so that I may be attached to nothing or no one except my Lord, to live a life of obedience to Holy Mother Church, to my legitimate Superiors, and to the Rule and Constitutions of Children of Mary, not as a slave bound out of fear, but as a child of Mary who finds joy and freedom in lovingly striving to please God through my obedience. I promise to pray for our archbishop, for abundant and holy priests and to give my life, as a Sister of Children of Mary, to quench the Thirst of Jesus to be loved in the Most Blessed Sacrament – that all will love and adore Him.”

"Dear Daughter, I earnestly commend you to God that your gift of self, made one with the sacrifice of the Eucharist, may be brought to perfection. By this perpetual profession, dear daughter, you are now fully and definitively a Sister of Children of Mary and incorporated into our Community with all its rights, favors and privileges. Amen."

 

"... to wear as a sign to all

 that you are wedded to the Eternal King.

Remain faithful to your Bridegroom,

trusting in His Love

and relying on His Grace,

so that you may come to the wedding feast

of eternal joy.”

 

 

 

Sister Faustina Maria

signs the Vow Book

 

and receives the ring,

as she is wed

to her Divine Spouse...

 

 

"Sing for joy, virgins of Christ; He is your Spouse for all eternity."

"With courageous heart she followed the Lamb, Who was crucified for love of us; she offered herself as a chaste and spotless victim."

"Sing for Joy, Virgins of Christ;

He is your Spouse for all eternity"

"O Most

Holy Trinity,

I Adore You.

My God, My God,

I Love You

in the

Most Blessed

Sacrament."

We thank all who assisted in the beauty of the Mass, all of our friends who attended and all who were joined in spirit. Please continue to pray for us! We love you all!
