In thanksgiving for the many graces of the Christmas season, we wanted to share with you a custom of ours.

According to a monastic tradition, each year we clothe the Christ Child. Every year, we make an outfit in the style of one of our new foreign missions or for a specific intention. This year, to celebrate the Year for Priests and to encourage prayers for its fruits, our sisters around the world clothed the Babe as the Eternal High Priest.

May our Blessed Mother continue to bless and protect her sons – all the priests of the world – and may she inspire many young men to answer the call of her Divine Son.
