Lucia Acceptance into Postulancy

Monday, October 20, 2014 dawned as a ‘twice- blessed’ Day for our Sisters! It was the 118th Anniversary of the Approbation of the Rule of our Institute: the Sisters Adorers of the Precious Blood. The day also brought us the great joy of the Entrance into Postulancy of "Lucia" (Lucia Hong Nhung Tran) from Viet Nam. Lucia has been with us at the Formation House since July 5, 2014, and was accepted in September to become the newest member our Congregation.

The ceremony took place at the end of Mass in our little chapel, when Father Pio Beorchia blessed a special white candle marked with a Precious Blood seal. Father then gave the candle to Lucia as we sang a hymn to the Holy Spirit, asking God’s grace and light for her. Father blessed the new postulant with a special prayer, and the ceremony concluded with the "Greeting of Peace." We welcomed our new member with great joy and gratitude to God for the gift He has given her in her religious vocation. May He call many more young women to generously give their lives to Him and to His People in the ministry of prayer within community, the contemplative way of life, as Sisters Adorers of the Precious Blood. Praise God!
