October 2010 Month of the Rosary

+JMJ Traditionally October is the month of the Rosary since October 7th is the feast of our Lady of the Rosary. Our Community prays daily the 20 decades of the Rosary, a complete meditation on the life of Jesus found in the Gospels included in the Joyful, Luminous, Sorrowful and Glorious Mysteries.

This month has been a living out of these mysteries in our own lives as we have journeyed with family members through the dying process, Sister Mary Rose’s elder cousin, Thomas Nishikubo (Uncle Tom) and Sister Mary Joseph’s father, Guido (Bill) Mei. “Eternal rest grant unto them, O Lord and let Perpetual Light shine upon them. May their souls and the souls of all the faithful departed rest in peace. Amen.”

Sister Mary Joseph was able to be at her father’s bedside when he went home to be with the Lord as well as with the family for the funeral arrangements. She then went on visitation to the state of Washington to further discern with the candidate and on mission to individual and families to live and share our Charism and Spirituality.

October also included the annual retreat for the 1st year High School Confirmation candidates of San Buenaventura Mission parish, with 90 participating over 2 days. Thank you to everyone who helped and who prayed for those on retreat.

Construction on the convent continues with NO move-in date this month as dry wall installation and texturing is completed and interior painting begins. The progress is slow… so we continue to pray for the work to be done according to God’s time schedule.
