We have been able to tour the Motherhouse grounds which are very large. There are beautiful little grottos tucked here and there as well as many buildings - all of which we have not yet seen. We had a nice visit at St. Joseph's Infirmary. This picture shows us with Schwester M. Elfrede, Schwester M. Viola and Schwester M. Agnes.
We were also able to go to the Motherhouse cemetery on the first day and pray at the grave of Mother M. Anselma, our foundress, and our other former Reverend Mothers who have died. We prayed especially for our Sisters and for vocations to our Congregation, here in Germany and in America.
This is at least a beginning to explaining our adventures. We will continue to do so throughout our stay.
To answer a few of your questions from the previous post:
Most of the Sisters here speak German. We do not have a translator but we are carrying around our little dictionaries! All of the prayers are in German and we are learning them.
We wear our black American habits while we are here. The Sisters from Japan and Brazil also wear their habits, which are grey.
The Sisters from Indonesia will arrive this weekend. Then we will all be here. The guest quarters are in the Generalate, which is the building where Reverend Mother has her office. This is connected to the main convent of the Motherhouse.
We will say, "Aufwiedersehen!" for now.
