This almost a year old now but just found this article among my million and one Bookmarks! The picture is so beautiful as is the article on this lovely young woman giving her whole life to Jesus! She is in the Carmelite Monastery in Alexandria, SD.
Catherine Clemen, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Mark Clemen and a proud graduate of Our Lady Star of the Sea School, will be making her first vows to become a Discalced Carmelite Nun in a few weeks. Please pray the following novena for her, starting August 31st, as she makes her silent retreat before her vows:
“O Holy Spirit, Spirit of wisdom and divine love, impart Your knowledge, understanding, and counsel to youth that they may know the vocation wherein they can best serve God. Give them courage and strength to follow God’s holy will. Guide their uncertain steps, strengthen their resolutions, shield their chastity, fashion their minds, conquer their hearts, and lead them to the vineyards where they will labor in God’s holy service.”
