The past few weeks have been very busy and full of life for me. I went on vacation and then retreat and then made my Final Vows on July 11th. It was all amazing!
Thank you very much for all of your support and prayers! I am in awe and overwhelmed by all the love and blessings I have been showered with recently.

For me, one of the highlights of the profession mass was the phenomenal reflection given by my dear friend and Messy Jesus Business contributor Sister Sarah Hennessey in which she cites what my heart, one day, began to say: “I pray, dear One, that the union that comes from my consecration helps your Church to boldly burn with the fire of your love.” (This was something I shared in my most recent Global Sisters Report column.)
According to many who were present on Saturday, it was obvious I was boldly burning with a fire of love for Jesus; my family; my friends; my FSPA sisters; my Rabble Rousers; and my partners in a life of Messy Jesus Business, including all of you!
May God bless us–we are all in this Messy Jesus Business as we set the world on fire with Gospel love! Amen!
How absolutely wonderful! Congratulations, Julia! (and, I just now realized you and I were in the same Mark course @CTU w Barbara Reid in June. #readingfatigueandblindness)
Thanks Susan! Yes, I am TRYING to focus on my assignments now that my big celebration is over…
