The taking of the habit in the Carmel Monastery of Pater Noster in Jerusalem

Saturday October 14th 2023, Mass was celebrated to pray and give thanks to the Lord for our Sister Ange who was going to receive the habit of the Carmelite nuns in the afternoon.

Sister Ange is Sister of Our Lady of the Apostles since August 14th, 2005. She was happily engaged in her vocation to continue the Apostles’ mission they had received from the Lord: to preach the Good News to those who do not yet know Christ, in Africa.

Our Lord surprised her, inspiring her to continue her mission in a contemplative life, in the Carmel monastery in Jerusalem. She first came to the Carmel in Jerusalem in December 2021 to experience our way of living. In March 2022, she went back to her Congregation in Africa and carried on her discernment. In September 2022, she came back to our Carmel in Jerusalem to begin her years of probation in our Community, according to what Church and the Carmelite Order require from a Sister asking to become a Carmelite nun.

Before the First solemn Vespers of the Feast of Saint Theresa of Jesus (of Avila), Sister Ange took the habit of Carmel. Her new name is Sister Ange Olga of the Holy Face: “Gaze on the Lord and all shall be easy to you” said saint Theresa of Jesus. “Those who look to him are radiant; their faces are never covered with shame.” Psalm 34:5.

Let nothing disturb you,

Let nothing frighten you,

All things are passing away:

God never changes.

Patience obtains all things

Whoever has God lacks nothing;

God alone suffices.
