Wednesday in the 2nd Week in Lent (Brother Garrett’s clothing)
On the occasion of a novice’s clothing in the religious habit, we learn about zeal in the hearts of those consecrating themselves to God. Postulancy has been a test and now the novitiate is the time to learn more about the spiritual life. Distrust of self and confidence in God will aid us along this path. The religious habit teaches death to the world, purity, obedience, prayer and service.
