shared by: Sr. M. Clementia, FSGM Currently missioned to St. Anselm Convent in Rock Island, IL As the Director of Religious Education for a large parish and school, the many small details of “Sacramental Season” can become quite hectic. Despite the busy-ness of this period, I was moved to try something extraordinary for the 56 Confirmation candidates in my charge. Knowing the culture and society these students are coming from, I felt that they especially needed to know that they are loved and worthy of sacrifice. Beginning February 27, I started making cord rosaries for each Confirmandee. During this Holy Week, I finished this monumental task through the intercession and help of Our Blessed Mother. I pray that each candidate will experience God’s everlasting love through this long-lasting sacramental. I am looking forward to handing each candidate a rosary on April 27- when these beloved children of God will be filled with the gifts of the Holy Spirit! Please pray for them!
The Franciscan Way of the Sisters of St. Francis of the Martyr St. George is the road that St. Francis followed: in the footsteps of Jesus Christ and in the spirit of our foundress, Mother M. Anselma.
