God's Mercy in abundance

Congratulations to the nine new Daughters of St. Philip Neri who this morning committed themselves to a year long period of discernment.  We had a beautiful Mass which included their Act of Consecration and reception of the holy medal of St. Philip. I thank God for the great gift they are to the Oratory family and ask Him now to bless them with His Spirit of Joy.  May God enflame their hearts so that they may enfold within their maternal love the many souls entrusted to their care and the priests for whom them have become true spiritual mothers.
