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..."
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
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"
I Adore You.
My God, My God,
I Love You
