The Solemn Profession
was beautiful. I don't think I've ever seen anyone look more radiant and joyful than Sr. Claire Benedicta did on Saturday.
The tiny chapel of her Carmel was overflowing with people, despite the fact that we had the first snowfall of the season and it's probable that some folks could'nt make it for that reason.
Before the Mass began, I did hear one thing which amused me a little. A gentleman in the pew behind me said to the lady next to him, sotto voce. "This feels sort of like a wedding.", whereupon she whispered back to him, "That's because it is ! "
