Catching Up: Belated Congratulations to Sister M Veronica, OSF

I couple of years ago I posted a notice of Sister M Veronica's reception as a novice with the Sisters of St Francis of Peoria. Well, on August 6th, Sister M Veronica, OSF, made her first profession of vows. First my apologies for not having posted about this in a more timely fashion. I realized I had not checked in on things on the Feast of St Francis and only just now rectified that!

Secondly though, my congratulations to Sr M Veronica on this step. I can honestly say that NOW the adventure begins because living the vows is not really the same as preparing to live the vows. Being professed is not really the same as preparing for profession. Sister Veronica, be assured of my prayers as you move through life and approach what we hope will be eventual perpetual profession and an even greater adventure! In that regard my congratulations to Sister Rose Therese (left in the above picture) who did indeed make perpetual profession the same day!
