Franciscan Community Welcomes Two Postulants

On September 8, 2018, Franciscan Sisters of Christian Charity welcomed two postulants, Lindsay and Yazmin. Watch for more coverage in the next months as they share more about themselves and their call to be a Franciscan Sister.

Community Director Sister Natalie Binversie asked Lindsay and Yazmin this question: Do you accept our invitation to live with us as Postulants in our Community?

Lindsay and Yazmin: With Mary I pray let it be done to me. May my yes teach me how to give birth to Jesus in a world so in need of love and forgiveness.

Later, Sister Natalie asked one more question.

Sister Natalie: Lindsay and Yazmin, do you wish to accept this tau cross as a symbol of your formal witness to all of being a Postulant in our Community of Franciscan Sisters of Christian Charity?

Postulants: Yes, I do.

The tau, the insignia, is the hand of Jesus covering that of Francis, a very Franciscan reminder of the call to follow Christ. The prayer service also included Scripture readings, songs and passages from Franciscan sources. Our Sisters and Franciscan chaplains congratulated the Postulants after the ceremony.

With Pope Francis, we invite all of us to pray:
Behind and before every vocation to the priesthood or to the consecrated life there is always the strong and intense prayer of someone: a grandmother, a grandfather, a mother, a father, a community…. This is why Jesus said: “Pray therefore the Lord of the harvest,” that is, God the Father, “to send out laborers into his harvest” (Mt 9:38). Vocations are born in prayer and from prayer; and only through prayer can they persevere and bear fruit.
