When praying about which name God had chosen for me, God focused my heart on the idea and commitment to doing His Holy Will. I am honored that God has chosen my name to be Sister Mary Annuntiata to remind me of how I am to imitate Mary's Fiat. She totally abandoned herself to God's Will in complete faith and love. I yearn to deepen my commitment to Christ at every moment with my own faithful fiat to His Will. Returning continually to the joy and hope of the Annunciation and the wonder of Love incarnate, I hope to surrender in humility to Christ. The constant cry of my heart is that His Will be fulfilled in me and all of His children.
Today, on the Feast of the Birth of Mary, our new postulants entered the postulancy of our American Province of the Sisters of St. Francis of the Martyr St. George! We thank God for the gift of these vocations. Pictured above - on their very first full day in the convent - are (from left) Ashley Vola, Samantha Goodson, Miranda Edgar, Jennifer Clark and Erin Leis. Welcome, Postulants! We Sisters are grateful that you have accepted Christ's invitation to belong totally to Him in our Franciscan community, and we support you wholeheartedly with our prayers and help! If you would like to send a word of welcome and encouragement to these new postulants, we will pass the greetings along to them. Just leave them as a "comment"!
