Mary Gibson, now Sister Mary Gibson, UST graduate, formerly a Minnesota blogger who achieved worldwide fame as the "Roamin' Roman" in her last year of college and as "Veritatis Splendor", formally received her habit as a postulant in the order of the Benedictines of Mary, Queen of Apostles. She joined the order last Summer. The blogs will remain active for viewing for the forseeable future.
Four new "Brides of Christ" took part in the ceremonies that took place on the traditional feast of the Epiphany, Tuesday, January 6 (not the Sunday celebration), in Kansas City, Missouri, presided over by Bishop Robert Finn. A fifth sister made her first profession of solemn vows at the same ceremony. The Kansas Catholic blog has more detail and pictures, here and here [and Jan 12, here, too]

Wouldn't you just kinda figure that these Benedictines have more young sisters, novices and postulants than most "progressive" orders all put together?
Is anybody paying attention in those dying progressive orders?
Pray for Sister Mary and all of them.
This is a contemplative order and
their particular apostolate is to pray for our priests.
