Today I look back on the excitement I felt on my Profession Day, 55 years ago today. I remember the feeling of now belonging to Jesus forever. We were given a ring and our Profession Cross. Both would be exchanged for a more simple cross and a silver ring instead of gold after Vatican II - this was 1960. The Americans were all in the first ceremony of Profession as we had three days of Profession ceremonies and then the Golden Jubilee of one of the Assistant Generals was on February 11th. I arrived in Chile on Valentine's Day!
Today I plan to have a quiet Day of prayer. I have so much to thank for and it has been a marvelous 55 years with so many graces and experiences of God's love!
