Minister's Post for May
Holding Each Other's Vocations
Dear Brother and Sisters,
Please remember that instead of our usual afternoon gathering, we will attend the 5:00 pm Mass and Profession of six new Franciscans. On this special day we will be joined by Holy Spirit Fraternity as their own Jaqui Bradley makes her profession. The Order is much enriched when we celebrate these rites together! I am sure we will give a warm San Luis Rey welcome to Jaqui, Judith and Bill Mussatto, and Maria Rodriguez (Holy Spirit’s Minister).
When I made my own profession, I placed my hands in the hands of Gloria, my Minister. I will never forget the warmth and love in her eyes. I could feel her vibrant faith, and marveled that such person actually believed I had a Franciscan vocation! While each profession is utterly unique before the living God, there is a sense in which we truly hold each other’s vocations. May we do so with warmth and love.
As fraternity, then, we take into our hearts and prayers the following candidates for profession:
