sister blogger happenings this week

Yes, it’s a miracle. I’m finally getting around to doing my part wit a trip round the Sister Bloggers web ring!! (I’ve been a little bit preoccupied these days, understandably if you look at Natty’s last post). And so I give you (drumroll) a partial trip around the ring ...

Ann has been learning about Sister Dorothy Stang who was martyred in Brazil last year.

OSB Novice reflects on the power and pull of prayer from around the world.

Sr Claire Joy is struggling with continuing her blog.

Sr. Anne is on a home visit to New Orleans.

Sr. Marianne
points out an interesting study of the mystic's brain!

Yours truly and Sr. Steph have been discovering how much we've changed the past 10 years (becoming a Sister of course being a BIG CHANGE).

And do yourself a favor, visit Sister Christer to follow the adventures of three travelling nuns and their friend the cow.

That's all for now. We'll see if I post updates MORE or LESS (if that's possible) frequently when I'm in the canonical novitiate.

Peace my sister bloggy friends
Sr. Susan Rose Francois, CSJP (I'm trying to get used to writing that one!!!)

To the Brand New Sr. Susan Rose, CSJP upon her reception into the novitiate with the Sisters of St. Joseph of Peace in Seattle this weekend! All her "final" posts from Portland gave me goosebumps, and she has included pictures of her reception ceremony as well that filled me with joy.

I realize there are a few of you out there who are looking forward to a round-up, but all three of us who have volunteered to be responsible for that sort of thing have become pretty busy with offline life of late. So I will promise you my best intentions for a round-up in the near future, but in the meantime, go celebrate with Sr. Susan!!!
