Back at the end of last January when I got here to the formation house and start at the university I prayed asking St. Therese the Little Flower to give me a sign if I am doing the right thing and if I am in the right place. Nothing happened but I know that such things do not always come nor do they always come when you expect them.
Well this year we started up with a little smaller commuity. At the end of last year three of the six guys here moved on to the novitiate, us other three have more time to get our degrees (myself and one other need another year the other guy needs two). We gained a new guy at the start of this year, he already has his degree so he will move on at the end of this year (that would be June 2007).
Now things have been a bit discouraging here, don’t really want to get into that.
Now on to what happened last night that has prompted me to post this here.
We had Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament with Benediction last night. While looking upon the Blessed Sacrament in the Monstrance something caught my eye. The Monstrance was on the altar in our Chapel. Behind the altar is the old High Altar and the Tabernacle.
Right there, next to and just infront of the Tabernacle on the High Altar was a rose. Someone put it there but it caught my eye just as I recalled my prayer asking of a sign from St. Therese.
So could this have been my Rose from Heaven?
Or am I reading into this to much?
