“Six days before the Passover…” John 12:1

25 Mar

On the Monday, March 25, six days before Easter Sunday, Bishop Launay Saturne, celebrated the Eucharist and blest our new home in Jacmel, Haiti. We were blest with the presence of Sister Mary Jolene and Sister MaryAnne, provincial council members. Even though our chapel is small, we were graced with the presence of friends and neighbors who have helped us begin the Felician mission in Haiti. Mass was in Creole and English. After the house blessing, we had a Haitian feast prepared by our neighbor. As soon as our guests left, our neighborhood boys, who come to visit us every evening, stopped by and shared in the feast. It was truly a grace-filled day. We ended our day with Eucharistic Adoration for the first time in our chapel, using our new small monstrance, a gift given to us by SM Christopher and her Council. This was such a great and beautiful gift given to us for this special day! Mesi Bondye mesi!

    I love the small monstrance. I have often felt that the big, overly ornate ones that are sometimes used here are just distracting and unneccesary. Wishing you a Blessed Holy Week! : )
