A Passionist nun in Belgium feeding sheep this afternoon.
Unlike many Passionist communities, the habit has at least been retained, admitedly modernised.
A Passionist sister on the day of her profession, crowned with thorns and carrying a cross. The reform of the Rule has wrought devastation on the Passionist Order. The Rule in fact remains but very much attenuated by the customary that has been attached to it.
R. The Angel of the Lord descended from heaven, and came rolled back the stone from the door and sat upon it, which same said unto the women, * Fear not ye : for I know that ye seek him that was crucified : he is not here for he is risen : come ye and see the place where the Lord lay, alleluia.
V. And entering into the sepulchre, they saw a young man sitting on the right side, clothed in a long white garment, and they were affrighted.
R. Fear not ye : for I know that ye seek him that was crucified : he is not here for he is risen : come ye and see the place where the Lord lay, alleluia.
