Some of you will remember the blog of the lovely TheresaMF, a Christendom College student, which she titled “Destination: Order”. She entered the Dominican Monastery of St. Jude in 2006, and there became Sister Mary Jordan of the Holy Family. Last week, on August 24, she made her First Profession of Vows. Please keep this dear sister – and the Monastery of St. Jude – in your prayers and, if possible, in your plan of giving.
Sister Mary Jordan, upon entering religious life with the Dominicans, must have gone through a ceremony similar to that filmed in this rare documentary:
“When, I wonder, did we in America ever get into this idea that freedom means having no boundaries and no limits? I think it began on the 6th of August 1945 at 8:15 am when we dropped the bomb on Hiroshima… Somehow or other, from that day on in our American life, we say we want no limits and no boundaries.”
– Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen
