On the day of her Solemn Profession of vows:
On January 11, 1903, on the Feast of Epiphany, Sr. Elizabeth of the Trinity pronounced her Solemn Vows in the Chapter Room (above) which was decorated with flowers. It was a private ceremony and so only her religious Community was present. She received her Profession Crucifix (below) from Mother Prioress as a sign of her new status as the Spouse of the Crucified.
“Who could describe the joy of my soul when, on contemplating the crucifix which I received after my profession and which our Reverend Mother placed “as a seal on my heart,” I could say to myself: “At last He is all mine and I am all His. I have nothing else but Him. He is my All!” And now, I have only one desire, to love Him, to love Him all the time, to be zealous for His honor as a true bride, to give Him joy, to make Him happy by preparing a dwelling and a refuge for Him in my soul, so that there He may forget, by the strength of my love, all the abominations of the wicked!”
