And a prayer intention. From an email recently received from a friend:
Dear friends and family,
Many of you know that I’m entering the Carmel of the Little Flower this Saturday, the Feast of the Immaculate Heart of Mary. It is a joyous fulfillment of the path that the Lord has led me on thus far, though I will certainly need your prayers to persevere and to continue my discernment.
I would appreciate especially if you would pray for my family. They are making a tremendous sacrifice in giving their daughter to God, particularly as a cloistered Carmelite. I hope you will support them in many generous prayers.
May we each in our own way continue to joyfully sing of His Mercies, until we finally see Him as He truly is!
