“Let us come close to the crib. If you love riches, you will find the gold that the kings brought; if you are looking for the smoke of honors, you will find that in the incense, and if you take delight in the delicacy of the senses, you will find the delicate perfume of myrrh that pervades the stable. Be rich in love for this adorable Savior, respectful in the familiarity with which you relate to Him, and delight in the joy of experiencing in your soul so many inspirations and affections because you belong to Him.”

The Visitation Order held its first General Assembly in Annecy France from Sept 18-27, 2017 and Mother Susan Marie of our Brooklyn community was privileged to attend, along with 34 other Visitandines from around the world.
After 25 years since the last Assembly, there was much to discuss. Especially significant were the conferences on the Heart of Christ and the Spiritual Directory.
The Sisters also contributed their thoughts about enclosure, formation, use of the media, unity and diversity and solidarity among the communities.
