A Merry Christmas from the Poor Clares

This is our first attempt at a web-cam! We hope our Christmas message comes to you loud and clear. We'll keep working at trying to 'perfect' it! A complete 'blog entry' will be coming soon!

Merry Christmas. I am Lutheran, but I will still pray for your community. I like to keep up with what you are doing in Arizona.

I wonder if you'll still be able to do webcam updates for us when you're cloistered. I hope so! :D

What a blessed discovery - the Poor Clares of Perpetual Adoration also here in the blogosphere! I am a fellow Catholic blogger. My blog's main mission is to share insights on life's journey and in a particular way to support religious life and those journeying towards/in it. Feel free to stop by. If it's ok, I'll post a link to your blog on mine so that more will come to know you and your new ministry of cloistered evangelization via the internet. What a beautiful response to God's call!

I receive the newsletter from Henceville so I know your charism and vision. Blessings in abundance on your new foundation in Arizona! May St. Joseph direct the building of your new monastery and our Lady direct your mission and ministry.

I don't recognize you as "Poor Clares" not to be rude but to me the only true Poor Clares are those that are the Collettines. You don't rise at Midnight for prayer and you are not praying ALL the Hours of the Divine Office.
It seems to me you have chosen the easy way.

Thank you sisters for your prayers and intercessions and witness to our Lord.
I love sharing your newsletter at church, but lately I've been thinking maybe I should leave it in doctor's offices, stores, etc. where someone can learn about your vocation and maybe be comforted by your words.
God Bless you all...look forward to your next update.

Thank you Sisters, for listening to the Lord of your hearts and for following him out into the desert... to follow the Lord, WHERE-EVER he leads, is the hardest and yet the most fulfilling...
Thank you!!
and Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas, Sisters!
I just want to say thank you for all that you do for me and for the whole world! In a way you nuns are literally heroines, saving real people from hell! It sometimes makes me want to grow older already so I can become a nun! I mean, if God really does want me to be one!
God bless!

Absolutely beautiful! Really thank you for this blog!

My wife and I and our 2 daughters and son (ages 18, 14, and 9) spent a week in Hanceville AL in the beginning of November. WOW!

Your order is a ray of sunshine from Heaven into this world which so needs the Divine Child.

I only discovered your orders new work in AZ when I began reading the Olamshrine website's newsletter.

I have shown your images to some of the fallen away Catholics at my job and I notice that people actually well up with tears of joy when they see this kind of beauty returning to the world through consecrated life.

To see the smile on a protestant coworker's face when I tell him that you nuns and your sisters in France and Alabama are "praying for you and for me, to the Divine Presence"... it does more that FIFTY lunchtime lectures from me. YES!

Please offer your daily joys & sufferings for all us Catholic Home schooling families out here who love you and pray for you always.
