Now I understand!

Les Soeurs de Notre-Dame de SionAlejandra:

Now I understand why all the sisters said to me “You will like Ein Karem!” because it is really a wonderful place, the view is amazing. I know now why father Mary Alphonse decided to stay here.

My first visit to Jerusalem is like a short film which I am watching and living at the same time. It was impressive to me to see so many people walking along the narrow streets.


I have no words to express my feelings. When I came into Ein Karem, Jerusalem, my heart started to beat with excitement. I am really glad and I am blessed to live this experience. While I was walking there I prayed the Magnificat over and over again.


Once Father Theodore explained to the novices, “I want you to have hearts bigger than the whole world.”
