We’re off to EWTN!

    Sr. Rose Marie and Sr. John Mary are departing in about 30 minutes to travel to Birmingham! If you read our previous post you know that they are going to be guests on EWTN’s “Life on the Rock” this Thursday night at 7 p.m. central.

    They have certainly been surrounded in prayer for weeks now. Last evening all of us Sisters prayed over them before the Pieta statue and in about 15 minutes Mother Catherine Marie is going to bless the van with exorcised oil and salt.  May the Sister’s words and actions redound to the greater glory of our Crucified King, a better knowledge of the Passionist Congregation and a greater influx of vocations. That’s quite a lot to ask of a mere show…but with God all things are possible! 🙂

    If you would like a preview of the spirit and joy of their witness read this article by Sr. Rose Marie on the front of our Summer 2009 newsletter.

  1. I just finished watching “Life on The Rock” with Sisters John Mary and Rose Marie.

    What a beautiful witness to the joy and peace a vocation brings. As they each related their journey in finding their true vocation, I could see how they struggled, and had some confusion. But, I also saw that with lot’s of prayer, the intercession of Our Lady, and the support of those around them, they were able to say “yes” to Jesus.

    They are a true inspiration to all who are contemplating a vocation. Thank you EWTN for bringing the Passionist Nuns to us.

    My prayers are with all of you and may you have many more vocations to your order.
    God Bless you.

  2. Hello Sisters!!
    I watched you last night on EWTN and what a wonderful job you did. It was good to see you in “reality” after seeing so many pictures.

    Your presentation will inspire many a young woman………I think you are on the way to gathering many young vocations.

    Thank you for sharing so much of your life on the web…….I am most grateful.

    Many blessings,
    Please keep me in prayer as I am recovering from back surgery……..6 weeks now!! Hurray!

    Dear Sr. John Mary and Sr. Rose Marie,
    Praised be Jesus Christ!
    Thank you for such an inspiring interview. I really enjoyed hearing your vocation stories and about how fulfilling life inside the monastery is.
    You gave me such encouragement. God bless you both and your whole community!!
    Pray for me and my family, please! I enter on Sept. 8th, but leave for the convent on Sept. 7th.
    Thank you for your prayers!

    United in Love for the Divine Heart of Jesus,

  4. Sisters, I saw the show last night and you both were wonderful!
    I am sure you inspired many young women to consider a vocation.
    You were articulate and we could cleary see your inner peace and happiness.
    Your grace came across the screen beautifully.
