Have you ever seen such a beautiful statue of Mary and Jesus? Jesus, as a toddler is sleeping peacefully and contentedly on his mother's chest. It dates back to our Sisters' early ministry in this country.

Do you love the Rosary? You may not know that there are variations on praying this traditional prayer. Try praying the psalter of the Aves which is just the first half of the Hail Mary prayer with a Scriptural "Little Chant" at the end, a German tradition.
Our beloved Sister Frances Maureen Carlin, Prioress from 1967 to 1973, wrote a booklet called the Renewed Rosary, that guides people through these mysteries.

MYSTERY -- Teaching on Prayer (With the "Little Clauses" from Scripture)
1. IN SECRET (Matthew 6:5-8)
Hail Mary Full of Grace the Lord is with thee, blessed are thou among women and blest is the fruit of your womb, Jesus -- who said, "Pray to your Father in secret." (10x)
2. The Power of Prayer (Matthew: 7:6-11)
Hail Mary Full of Grace the Lord is with thee, blessed are thou among women and blest is the fruit of your womb, Jesus -- who said "Ask, seek, knock, your heavenly Father hears." (10x)
3. The Power of United Prayer (Matthew 18:19-20)
Hail Mary Full of Grace the Lord is with thee, blessed are thou among women and blest is the fruit of your womb, Jesus -- "There I am in the midst of you." (10x)
4. Seeking Time (Mark 1:35-39)
Hail Mary Full of Grace the Lord is with thee, blessed are thou among women and blest is the fruit of your womb, Jesus -- who went to a lonely place early in the morning to pray. (10x)
5. The Our Father (Matthew 11:1-4)
Hail Mary Full of Grace the Lord is with thee, blessed are thou among women and blest is the fruit of your womb, Jesus -- who said "When you pray, say Our Father." (10x)
