Whew! What a day. Yesterday, was the day in Our Lady of Mercy Chapter, of the Lay Fraternities of Saint Dominic, when those who wish to move ahead in their formation, do so, by making either temporary promises, or life promises. It was such a joyous "high."
Our Chapter choir, the Echoes of Truth, rocked. It was very charismatic. The Chapter's Liturgical Dance Team performed an original choreography, How Beautiful is the Body of Christ. We had honored guests and filled the little chapter with happiness and God's grace.
There were four men making Permanent Promises, seven making Temporary Promises, two entering the Novitiate, and four wishing to be Postulants. God is good!
Are we not visible evidence that the Dominican vision is alive and growing? Are we not visible evidence that redemption is not just an abstract term but a physical reality?
Are we not blessed...very blessed, indeed?
