On Sunday, January 13, The Feast of the Baptism of the Lord, Sr Renée Hall OP explored the third sub-theme of the La Divin Devotions (2018–2019) ‘Mary, Mother of Religious Vocations’.
Sr Renée began by situating her vocation within the teachings of the Church. The Church teaches that the gifts and graces of baptism allow us to live the Christian life fully. Our parents bring us to the altar and we are baptised in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit. The holy chrism leaves a mark on our foreheads, that we may not see, but this mark consecrates us to the Lord.
