Our Lady's Assumption

Today we rejoice as we celebrate the titular feast of our Order. This morning we processed through the cloisters chanting to Mary and venerating her icon pictured above. We love Mary and seek her love and protection always.

Blessed is she: within the bounds of her body was contained the Boundless One who fills the heavens, which cannot contain him.
Blessed is she: she has born the mighty giant who sustains the world, she has embraced him and covered him with kisses.
Blessed is she: for to her Son the saints owe all their happiness.

Icon of our Lady written by Brother Terence. Lines by James of Sarug.
