Saturday, April 7th was a joyous and festive day for all those who were part of the celebration of the profession Solemn Vows by Br. Gregorio Vazquez Solis, O.Carm. In the presence of his family and his friends, Gregorio consecrated himself to God for life in the service of the Church through the charism of the Order of the Carmelites. The ceremony took place in the chapel at Whitefriars Hall, Washington, DC. Several branches of the Carmelite Family were present, including many friends from various religious communities who attend Catholic University of America.
Let us continue our prayer for Gregorio and for all the friars, especially those in formation, so that the Spirit of the Risen Christ may guide them in their calling and for Our Lady of Mount Carmel to constantly protect and enfold them in her mantle of love.
