The Public Religious Profession of Brother Alfonso Maria, F.SS.R.

Having been absent from the monastery
on 22 August 2012
Brother Alfonso Maria, F.SS.R.
made his Public Religious Profession yesterday,
shortly after his return from the Philippines.

Our Lady's Chapel, Stronsay,
after the Missa Cantata.

The Public Profession of Vows
Most loving Lord, Father Almighty, Eternal God, Who art deserving of the highest love, I, Brother Alfonso Maria Star of the Sea, joined, even though unworthy, to the Congregation of the Sons of the Most Holy Redeemer, inflamed with the desire of consecrating myself entirely to Thy Holy Love, bind myself to serve Thee for the future with all my strength, by imitating the holy life of Jesus Christ Thy Son, and Our Divine Redeemer, which is the only way of pleasing Thee, and to labour for the salvation of the most abandoned souls, especially of those who live in the country, according to the principal end of this Congregation. Therefore, now, in the presence of Thy Divine Majesty, of Mary Most Holy and Immaculate, my Mistress and Mother, of St Joseph and St Alphonsus, and of the whole Court of Heaven, prostrate on my knees, I promise and vow for three years:  OBEDIENCE, CHASTITY, and POVERTY, and I declare myself bound by these vows, in the manner expressed in the Rules of St Alphonsus and the Constitutions of the Sons of the Most Holy Redeemer. Amen.


Thanksgiving Antiphon to Our Lady.
Ave Regina Caelorum.

Brother Alfonso Maria, remember us in your prayers that we may all want to, at least in some small way, please our Only Hope.
