On January 6, 2013 Sister Mary David Walgenbach will celebrate the 52nd anniversary of her monastic profession. We join Sister Mary David in celebrating God’s faithful presence through all these years, and we give thanks for the gifts of stability and growth in monastic life. The Suscipe, a prayer which is sung as part of the monastic profession, continues to offer its blessing:
Sustain me, O God, as you have promised, that I may live,
and disappoint me not in my hope.
