VOCATIONS TUESDAY: Third Order Franciscan Sisters of the Immaculate

December 9, 2008

The Third Order Franciscan Sisters of the Immaculate is an offshoot of the Franciscans Tertiaries of the Immaculate founded by Fr. Stefano Manelli, FI. They are totally dedicated to Our Lady sealed by the Marian vow of total consecration to the Immaculate, after the recent example of St. Maximilian Kolbe. They live a penitential life of prayer in community; have made private vows of poverty, chastity and obedience.

 

Starting the day with Morning Prayer, the Sisters go out to work in a variety of church related occupations centered in the parish. They also make and sell rosaries, rosary bracelets, and a variety of craft items to help support the FI missions. Spiritually united with the other Sisters, each sister prays the Angelus, Rosary, Chaplet of Divine Mercy and other community prayers. Living a life of love and joy in the Immaculate, the Sisters seek to make Our lady known and loved and to bring all to Christ through the Immaculate. Coming together for meals, the Sisters are spiritually renewed with readings from a variety of pious works.

The Sisters live in community, wear a traditional habit, and are in total conformity with the church magisterium. Under the guidance of the FI priests, the Sisters share the same charism and spirituality as the FI missionary friars and Sisters, and also evangelize through mission appeals to support the FI missions. The formation program consists of aspirancy, postulancy, novitiate, and profession. The Sisters accept candidates beginning with the age of 18, as well as delayed vocations. They have one retreat Sunday a month, make a variety of novenas during the year, pray the Stations of the Cross, Franciscan crown and have choir practice as well as other spiritual exercises throughout the month.

After coming together for evening prayer, the Sisters enjoy each other’s company at recreation. Closing the day with night prayers, the Sisters retire after singing a hymn to Our Lady enclosing themselves under her mantle with the knowledge that they have brought joy and solace to mission lands through their prayer and support of Our Lady’s missionaries.

Institute of the Good Shepherd

 


ego sum pastor bonus: et cognosco meas, et cognoscunt me meæ
I am the good Shepherd: and I know Mine, and Mine know Me (
Jn. 10:14)

Under the Roman calendar of 1962, yesterday was often called “Good Shepherd Sunday”, so called because the Gospel tells us of Jesus as the Good Shepherd. As pointed out on The New Liturgical Movement this also means it was a feast day for the Institute of the Good Shepherd.

The Institute of the Good Shepherd is a Society of Apostolic Life of traditionalist Priests in full communion with the Holy See. Founded only in September 2006, the Institute has grown quickly. Read the rest of this entry »

VOCATIONS TUESDAY: Priestly Fraternity of Saint Peter (FSSP)

Priestly Fraternity of St Peter

The Priestly Fraternity of St. Peter is a Clerical Society of Apostolic Life of Pontifical right, that is, a community of Roman Catholic priests who do not take religious vows, but who work together for a common mission in the world. The mission of the Fraternity is two-fold: first, the formation and sanctification of priests in the cadre of the traditional liturgy of the Roman rite, and secondly, the pastoral deployment of the priests in the service of the Church.

The Fraternity was founded on July 18, 1988 at the Abbey of Hauterive (Switzerland) by a dozen priests and a score of seminarians. Shortly after the Fraternity’s foundation and following upon a request by Cardinal Ratzinger, Bishop Joseph Stimpfle of Augsburg, Germany granted the Fraternity a home Read the rest of this entry »

VOCATIONS TUESDAY: Franciscan Friars of the Immaculate

Franciscan Friars of the Immaculate


VOCATIONS TUESDAY: Slaves of the Immaculate Heart of Mary

May 6, 2008

A diocesan order in full union with the Holy See (Saint Benedict Center in Still River is not associated or affiliated with St. Benedict Center in Richmond, New Hampshire! – a seperated branch not in full union with the Holy See!) they are pictured above with the Dominican Sisters of Summit NJ on their way to see the Pope in NY.

ABOUT THEM:

A Unique Consecration…An Urgent Work

A slave of the Immaculate Heart of Mary lives what Saint Louis Marie de Montfort called True Devotion to Mary-striving daily to “be a true disciple of Jesus Christ, walking in the footsteps of His poverty, humility, contempt of the world . . .” Members of the Order take vows of Poverty, Chastity, and Obedience and live these vows in union with Mary.

 

Urgent Mission

Slaves of the Immaculate Heart of Mary proclaim by their life and message the way of salvation. They do this zealously, convincingly, “in pure truth, according to the Gospel and not according to the maxims of the world,” contrary to today’s widespread errors which minimize, if they do not nullify, the teachings of Christ and His Church on the message of salvation. Our Order was established to defend the doctrine: Extra Ecclesiam Nulla Salus. This doctrine is comprehensive and universal. Its scope includes all Church teachings-the reverence due the Papacy, the importance of the traditional Latin liturgy for worship, the sacredness of human life in all its forms. Its message extends to all men, Catholic, non-Catholic, rich, poor, educated, un-educated.

Two-fold Means to Accomplish the Work:

1. Education-an indispensable facet of our mission.

Our religious constitution states as one of our goal “to restore Catholic ideals among the youth so as to foster religious vocations and responsible Catholic leadership in society.” To accomplish this the Order conducts a school on both elementary and high school levels, provides evening Read the rest of this entry »
