Eternal rest...

...grant unto her, o Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon her!

My Sister Mary of the Pure Heart, OP. died early in the morning on July 14th...

Besides being on the vocations committee, she was the choir director and a regular organist for the community. She will be greatly missed, but I praise God with the community for his mercy toward her. He called her home to himself about a week after a difficult operation had taken place, thus ending her suffering on earth.

May the angels lead you into Paradise, dear Sister!

De Profundis --Psalm 130
Out of the depths I cry to you, O Lord, Lord, hear my voice
O let your ears be attentive to the voice of my pleading.
If you o Lord should mark our guilt, Lord, who would survive?
But with you is found forgiveness, for this we revere you.
My soul is waiting for the Lord, I count on his word
My soul is longing for the Lord more than watchman for daybreak
Let the watchman count on daybreak, and Israel on the Lord
Because with the Lord there is mercy and fullness of redemption
Israel indeed he will redeem from all its iniquity...

May Sister Mary of the Pure Heart rest in peace...
Amen. Alleluia.
