Trinity Sunday

    Greetings!  We were all very happy to see the cover of the current “Today’s Missal” – the famous icon of the Most Holy Trinity. They are returning to such classic artwork. (Some of the previous stuff one had to just simply cover up!) 

As you can see Sister John Mary is delighted with the cover. By the way, her title is “of the Indwelling Trinity”.

    On such a meaningful feast I wanted to leave with you some quotes from a woman who truly lived in the awareness of God dwelling within her through the grace of Baptism – Blessed Elizabeth of the Trinity.

There, in the depths of my heart, in the Heaven of my soul, I love to find Him, since He never leaves me. ‘God in me, I in Him.’ Oh, that is my life! ‘Marie-Elizabeth of the Trinity’ I think this name indicates a special vocation; isn’t it beautiful! I so love this mystery of the Holy Trinity; it is an abyss in which I lose myself!

~ June 14, 1901

I am ‘Elizabeth of the Trinity,’ that is, Elizabeth disappearing, losing herself, letting herself be possessed by the Three…Let us join in making our days one continual communion: in the morning let us awake in Love; all day long let us surrender to Love, that is, by doing the will of God, in His presence, with Him, in Him, for Him alone. Let us give ourselves all the time in the way that He wants. And then, when evening comes, after a dialogue of love which has not ceased in our heart, let us also fall asleep in Love. Perhaps we will see faults, infidelities; let us abandon them to Love: it is a fire which consumes, so let us make our purgatory in His Love!  

Sanctus! Sanctus! Sanctus!

    This God who is Love is dwelling within us through Baptism and by remaining in the State of Grace.  May we, like Blessed Elizabeth, live by faith in awareness of this most awesome privilege!

    Dear Sr. John Mary,
    Praised be Jesus Christ!

    It is so good to see your smiling face on here! 😀

    Thank you for putting up such beautiful quotes of Bl. Elizabeth of the Trinity. Isn’t her spirituality just breathtaking? I have such a strong devotion to her.

    I am praying for you all at the monastery.

    In Christ, through Mary,


    And Happy Feastday to you!

    We were so disappointed that your upcoming retreat here with your Mom had to be cancelled. Sr. Mary let us all know what happened. We are all in prayer with you.

  2. Happy Feast day, dear Sister! Please pray for our Sr. Judith Miryam of the Trinity who shares a feast day with you!

    Your Dominican Sisters in Summit

    God reward you Sister!

  3. Dear Kirstine,

    You are in our prayers too! We can’t wait to see you in 2 months.

    As we come near the upcoming celebration of Corpus Christi and Forty Hours I am reminded of your time here last year during the deluge in chapel! You were privileged to keep watch with our Lord as the rest of us ate supper. I am sure you won’t forget how the rain ran down all the beams. Praise God the chapel roof hasn’t leaked for awhile!

  5. I too noticed and appreciated the new cover of the misselette. I love the icons and hope they go forward with these, instead of those horrendous “modern” ideas, that just didn’t work.

    Happy Feast Day to Sr. John Mary. I can’t wait to see Shannon in the habit!
