Carmelite Hermit Nuns Starting Up in Ireland (II)

Carmelite Hermit Nuns Starting Up in Ireland (II)

Victim Adorers of the Holy Face of Jesus O.C.D.

 
On December 2, we reported on the foundation of a new Carmelite hermitage in Ireland, called the Victim Adorers of the Holy Face of Jesus, O.C.D., by Sr. Irene (Prioress).
Please see this article for more details: http://sodalitium-pianum.blogspot.com/2016/12/victim-adorers-of-holy-face-of-jesus-odc.html
Today, I received news that things are progressing for the Victim Adorers, and have some pictures to share:
Fr. Giacomo Ballini (Prior of the nearby St. Finbar Chapel) recently visited the Victim Adorers for the blessing and vestition of the Carmelite habit:


The following pictures were taken during the all night adoration on the Vigil of the Immaculate Conception (December 7-8):

(“Meditating day and night on the law of the Lord and being vigilant in prayers”)
(Marking time without electricity or watches)
(Notice the belt?  From the Rule: “Your loins are to be girded with the belt of chastity”)
(The ring: Adorned by all professed nuns, symbolizing they are the true spouses of Jesus Christ)

(Adoration of the Holy Face of Jesus)
(All Night Adoration)
As mentioned previously, a website for the Victim Adorers is currently under construction.
Meanwhile, donations may be sent to their PayPay address: monabyrne@rocketmail.com
