Via The Anchoress, a great story about a Milwaukee convert and former teacher who recently made her final profession as a Benedictine Sister of Perpetual Adoration.

And some great feed about the portion of the profession rite shown here....
When a Benedictine monastic of either sex makes solemn vows, one of the most moving parts of the ritual is when he or she stands before the altar of the Lord, arms upraised, and makes the triple “suscipe,” proclaiming three times, “Accept me, Lord, as you have promised, and I shall truly live…”
I know more than a few Benedictines but never heard a thing about this -- sounds (and looks) absolutely beautiful.
