Our Novitiate, Provincial, Publishing House community of Boston has been chosen as one of the Apostolic Visitation sites. Two sisters are here with us who have been asked and have volunteered their time to journey with us during this grace filled event. Our opening prayers for this time were a reflection of Mary's visit to Elizabeth. The icon in this post shows Mary and Elizabeth embracing in faith as they realize the promises made to Israel are coming to fulfillment. Both Mary and Elizabeth also embrace in love and hope as they journey together with John the Baptist and Jesus through life, death and resurrection. During the Apostolic Visitation we respond to God's invitation to be with us in a a renewed way though our life together and in our apostolic mission on the new frontiers of evangelization.
