Here I am to do your will
In the month of August, I would like to share with you the vocation of Our Lord, and that we voluntarily accept His request.
Then we follow Christ, and all who follow Christ are given life and find purpose and meaning in life. Finally, I can say:
"Here I am to do your will, God." That is, I love the Lord my God with all my heart and all my soul, with all my strength; and likewise I love my neighbor as myself.
I dedicate my life to Christ and our neighbor. This will be my way through life.
When I think of my vocation, I think of when I was young, at the moment when God called me and I answered: "Yes!" to God.
Often we think of vocations as something individual, but it is not. We go the same way together. We are saved together and we become saints together.
A priest and a sister who has dedicated their soul to God, looks with the eyes and heart of Jesus to others because our lives are mirrors of Christ's life.
We humans also make mistakes in our lives.
As Mother Elisabeth said, "Trial is the way to salvation".
Welcome to the Bridgettine Convent!
The sisters participated in this year's Olsok celebration in memory of the Norwegian patron saint, Saint Olav.
The photos are taken of the procession before mass at Stiklestad, mass in the old church at Åre (Sweden) and procession after pontifical mass in the Nidaros Cathedral, Trondheim.
The Bridgettine Convent is open for all that want to stay in our guesthouse.
