Mary, my Mother – and yours, too!

I was not very devoted to Mary as I was growing up. Yes, I believed in her. I accepted her as our and Jesus' Mother. But only that. Why? Maybe because I was not particularly pious. I go to Holy Mass on Sundays only now and then. I did not pray the rosary unless it [...]

The Song of Songs

The Song of Songs or the Song of Solomon is a Book in the Old Testament that is quite difficult to understand. This Book is a love-poem that speaks of God's love for his people. But it also speaks of a soul's relationship with her Lord. Every time I read this, I feel invited to get [...]

Simple Joy

In the convent, we only have simple joys. Because our life is simple and does not have many distractions from the outside world, even the smallest and seemingly insignificant happenings bring us joy and cause laughter among us - little joys that give finishing touches to our day to day encounter with our living God. For [...]

On June 7, we solemnly celebrated the central mystery of our faith, namely, the Most Blessed Trinity. Thursday after this, we celebrated the Solemnity of the Body and Blood of Christ, or what is called Corpus Christi. (Some countries celebrate this on a Sunday after Trinity Sunday). What does this Feast mean? Why do we [...]

The Lockdown

2020-06-04T20:39:23+00:00May 31st, 2020|Categories: Convent life, News, Sharings|Tags: , , |

The Lockdown that COVID-19 imposed on us all has been painful and unbearable the longer we stay in it. Active people are not used to being locked down in a place for an extended period. As contemplatives who do not go out unless necessary, the Lockdown may not be strange to us. Unfortunately, it affects [...]

Despite the pandemic and the lockdown that ensued, we celebrated the Easter Triduum, i.e., Holy Thursday, Good Friday, Black Saturday and the Easter Vigil that followed, with greater solemnity. Because we are offering to God everything in union with the sacrifice of Jesus on the cross, our liturgical celebrations were all the more meaningful. We [...]

12th General Chapter Logo

2019-07-07T20:22:17+00:00June 25th, 2019|Categories: News, Sharings|Tags: , |

I just want to share the chosen Logo for our 12th General Chapter. According to our sister-designer, the design was inspired by the prayer for the Year of Preparation for our 12th General Chapter. The image of the dove is God the Holy Spirit to whom the Adoration Sisters are consecrated and by whom [...]
