May She Know Your Pleasure, Lord

A Handmaid Diamond Jubilee, HPB Vocations, News

Father Randy Stice gives our Diamond Jubilarian a special blessing after the Mass, which was offered for her and at which she, along with all the Handmaids, renewed her vows of Chastity, Poverty, and Obedience.

“Almighty God, we ask you to bless your daughter, Sister Mary Genevieve, for 60 years she has devoted herself to you.

During the 60 years she has been united and hidden through Christ with you.

And countless times everyday she has said yes to your invitation to prayer, to sacrifice, to adoration,

to give herself for priests.

May she know the gratitude of all the priests that have been touched by her prayers.

May she know your pleasure in her, in frailty and difficulty she has always said yes.

May she know your pleasure and your blessing on this day and hear you say, ‘Well done.’ “

In name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.
