September 11, 2014

On this 13th anniversary of 9/11, the nation remembers the victims of the tragedy which changed the life and soul of America forever.  The pain still remains for many whose lives were changed on that fateful day.  Very Reverend Mario Esposito, O.Carm offered the Mass for the Preservation of Peace and Justice as the Carmelite Sisters joined in prayers and petition.  We pray that God in His mercy grant us peace in our day and bestow the justice owed to many in this most challenging and troubled times.  Father Mario's homily can be found below.

The Commission on Community, Vocation & Formation continued the presentation of their proposals.  The Capitulars debated and voted on important issues dealing with prayer, vocations, ongoing formation and transitions, use of technology and more.  It was a bleak and windy day but the sun was out as the Capitulars wrapped up the day's meeting and gathered with the Avila Community for the five o'clock Evening Prayer.  A prayer service at 7:15 pm was held in the Chapel in remembrance of 9/11.  The Commission on Community, Vocations & Formation will continue their presentation on Friday, September 12th.
