Let the Pilgrimage Begin!

On Monday morning, three of us pilgrims from the United States are scheduled to arrive in our Motherhouse in Thuine, Germany. Sister M. Timothea and Sister M. Alfrede will celebrate their Golden Jubilee with their classmates on October 16 and enjoy time with their families in Germany. Sister Eva-Maria will visit the Motherhouse and be part of a two-week pilgrimage to Assisi, where our Sisters have an international house.

If God wills and an Internet connection permits, an occasional posting of photos and activities may take place. Since this is a pilgrimage and truly a journey in God's hands, only He knows what is ahead and what is possible to share. Please pray for us as we travel to the places where our Franciscan way of life was born.

Be assured of our prayers for you, especially as we visit the graves of our foundress, Mother M. Anselma in Thuine, and of Sts. Francis and Clare in Assisi.

The German version of the habit is so very nice. Why do you not wear the cord?

When questions arise from readers under the comments tab are the answers posted somewhere? I was looking back at some of the questions and I didn't see if they were answered anywhere.
