Peace and Perserverance

A dear friend of mine entered the Poor Clares today. I was honored to be present among a handful of her closest friends and family who went with her to witness her enter the monastery. After having said goodbye to everyone and hugs all around, she knocked on the cloister door and requested to enter the community. Please pray for Donné as she begins her journey with Christ within the enclosure and adapts to life with the Poor Clares. The picture above is of Donné receiving a blessing from her parish priest immediately before knocking and asking to enter.
