What Glory! Pray Novena for Sister Philomena’s final vows! October 12, 2015

A reader invites you to pray for a good religious as she prepares to take her final vows.  Please see the attached Novena to Sister Philomena of the Priory of Our Lady of Ephesus.

When the TLM was first being offered several years ago at San Juan Bautista parish in El Paso under the direction of Fr. Michael Rodriguez, this young lady said: “I know a good thing when I see it.”  She immediately embraced modesty and had such an energy of conversion that the entire community was affected for the better by her presence.  She was a significant driver behind a Catholic renaissance that graced El Paso for several years.  Very quickly she left to answer her call to the religious life, and was accepted by the Benedictines of Mary, Queen of Apostles as a late vocation.

A mother’s devout prayers figured in this most edifying history.  We never know the wonders that may result from our steadfastness in prayer.

The Novena is here!——–>>>>>Novena for Sister Philomena

I know she and all the Sisters of the Benedictines of Mary will be so pleased to have your prayers!  I feel blessed to know that they pray for me.  Such a grace to have women willing to give their lives to Christ in so total a fashion.  Each religious vocation like this is really a miracle.
