Following the words of Jesus and the example of Saint Anthony the Great,
we, the Antonine Sisters, leave everything behind to follow God, our sole treasure.
The life that we received from God we give back to Him through service and devotion.
Like Mary, the first consecrated woman, we live joyfully to proclaim the greatness of the Lord
who is the Way, the Truth and the Life.


Antonine Sisters Monthly Retreat

On Saturday September 25th, Father Rodolphe Wakim, Pastor of our Lady of Victory in PA, joined us to be our retreat master for the day. Our day started with the Safro, that is the morning prayer of the Divine Office, followed by a spiritual reflection on the meaning of the cross in our religious life. After the talk and brief discussion, we took time to meditate and reflect on what was discussed. Then we gathered back at Saint Anthony's Chapel to celebrate the Divine Liturgy to end the retreat.
It was a day full of blessings. Some of the thoughts that Fr. Wakim shared with us were: There is no greater love than the Cross (Jn 15:12-13), the Cross is the perfection the completion and the fulfillment of all love. In order for us to learn about and understand the Cross of Jesus, we can go to the Saints. They will show us, through their example, how to embrace the Cross of Christ in our lives. Any suffering that we go through should not be lived in vain. Suffering with Jesus is sharing in his cup, the cup of love and salvation for the world. Let us not be afraid to suffer for the love of humanity. Jesus helps us and guides us in our days even when we do not know it, even when we do not ask him directly for help. He does not want our recognition, he wants our salvation and that is what love is all about!
