The profession ceremony 发愿典礼



Priests, Religious and well wishers streaming into the monastery as time approaching. The rain started early in the morning stopped!

I met some of Sr. Marie's former classmates and uni-mates from Malaysia and Singapore. Kuala Lumpur Archdiocese Fr. who is studying Mandarin in Taiwan and seminarian Augustine Lee who is pursuing Theology study at Fu Ren University were also present.

I also met few of my fellow legionaries from Taipei came for the ceremony.

His Grace, "the humorous" Archbishop Hong, with about 15 priests and 2 Deacons, celebrated the Mass and the profession ceremony. His jokes and lively sermon made the otherwise solemn proceedings filled with love, joy and laughter.

After the profession and robing, Sr. Marie received a bouquet of flowers from her mother. His Grace Archbishop, as the head shepherd of the Taipei Archdiocese, also thanks Sr. Marie's mother and family for their great sacrifice and offering of a daughter to the vineyard of God.

当庆典时间越迫近时,神父,神职人员及教友朋友们陆续的抵达了修院。从早上就下着的的雨,突然停了!

我遇见了多位来自马来西亚,新加坡的大学同学。到台湾来学华语,来自吉隆坡总教区的神父及在辅仁大学修读神,哲学的李义兴修士,也到了参加典礼。

我也很高兴的回见到来参加发愿礼的台北圣母军军友,特别是秀英,素瑾和美满姐妹。素瑾和美满将在几天后,到来马来西亚,参加怡保第十八届圣母军交流会,到时我们可有好多时间聚谈。遗憾的是,秀英因工作,不能参与。

台北洪山川总主教,联同大约十五位神父及两位执事,主持了弥撒及发终身圣愿仪式。幽默的洪总主教,他的笑话及证道,使到原本严肃的典礼,充满温馨,喜乐及欢笑。

在发愿及穿上正式的会袍之后,妈妈向修女献上一束美丽的鲜花,温情感人。洪总主教,作为总教区的首牧,向修女的妈妈及家人,至上虔诚的谢意,感谢他们把一位女儿奉献给天主葡萄园。

弥撒及仪式结束后,修会特设了茶点招待到会者。新发愿玛利亚修女及姐妹修女们,也特地和他们交谈及道谢。 (更多照片在FACEBOOK)

近日,一直在追蹤玛利亚修女的消息。
很感動,玛利亚修女“出嫁”了。
充滿天主的祝福!
