Today is our Community Feast Day! This morning we celebrated in prayer with one another and then at Mass. At the parish Mass we renewed our vows publicly together. Yesterday, I told all the kids that if they came to that Mass they would see how we celebrate this day very especially. I was really touched by their presence, especially when after Mass was over they came up to say congratulations and happy feast. I celebrated the rest of the day by going to the doctor for the cold I'm sure my little angels gave me.
I'm going to take a nap until evening prayer, which is unusual, however, seeing as I am sick, I need all the rest I can get. Tonight we will pray together and have a little supper party. The best part of this day is being able to renew our vows in the presence of the people where we live. Our professions are made at our Motherhouse but the people we serve get an inside look on the vows on this special day when we celebrate and share with them as well.
