We visited the shrine St Elizabeth Ann Seton this morning. Here are some views.
On our way out we spoke for a few minutes with a habitless old sister… One of the Daughters of Charity. She mentioned among other things that they had 8… 8… novices for the US. Her class had been 51. Then she said she had been to hear a speech at Fordham. She saw several groups of young sisters all in habits, all happy! She opined that maybe they need that now, but perhaps they’ll grow out of it. “Besides,” she said, “there was this article in America Magazine…”
No connection for her between happy, young, habits and vocations.
You might say a prayer to the Saint for religious vocations.
