    Dear Sister Augusta Mary,

    Your smile says it all. Your joy is overflowing. Now the hard work begins. You are beginning to walk along a very special path to holiness. It will not always be easy, but it will be rewarding. There is certainly no greater joy than to become the Bride of Christ. Look forward to that day with joyful hope. Prepare a great gift for Him Who will be your Spouse. Give Him the gift of an undivided heart. You can know no greater love.

    My dear Sr. Augusta,
    What a delight to see you in that beautiful habit. Congratulations and blessings as you begin your Novitiate. May all the trials and joys serve only to draw you closer to the heart of Christ in the spirit of Francis and Clare. You are in my prayers and we ask for yours. I’m proud of you—we all are–here at ST. Dominic’s in San Francisco. Hope to see you sometime soon.

    Very moving. What is the lovely music in the video?

    • Thanks, Nancy! Most of the music is from the “royalty free” music offered by YouTube. The celtic sounding peppy song is the Zero-Project Homecoming, I believe is the name of it. And the voice with no accompaniment is actually Sr. Augusta – from a song she composed herself! 🙂

    Dear Sis. Augusta Mary,
    On behalf of the Chosen Flock Cursillo Team, and the Filipino Cursillo Community, we praise GOD — for you have been chosen to serve Him. We are so proud and happy for you. God bless you, and may you continue to leaven the environment with GOD’S LOVE AND PEACE. De Colores, Sr. Augusta Mary!
    Sis. Cora and Bro. Vic

  12. All joy and blessings to you, Sister Augusta, as you go forward in your walk with our precious Lord.

  14. Carden and Marian Smith says:

    Sr. Augusta Mary !!! Awesome!!!
    We are so grateful you kept touch with us = so now we can be part of your journey.
    May the joy of this special time be the bedrock of this yearlong growth in your awareness of Our Lord’s very special love for you. Our prayers are with you as we head to Medjugorje to have our own encounter with” Our Lady of Grace”.

    Dear Sisters,
    I first became acquainted with your Order thru Mother Angelica. EWTN and the sisters were a very large portion of my life. I truly miss seeing the sisters, as much as we did previously.
    I am a collector of Nun dolls, and have been for many years. Being a catholic Academy student it is all so natural to me. Many people are fascinated by my collection. It is my own little Monastery so to speak.
    May you all be blessed with more postulants in the future.
    Thank you for all of your prayers for this world of ours.
