Sr. Rebecca and Emily went back to Springfield, Missouri, for the second Steubenville conference for young people. This week, we helped in the bookstore. It was a great opportunity for us to meet young women who are interested in religious life. Our new Archbishop of St. Louis, Archbishop Robert Carlson, celebrated Mass on Sunday. At the end of Mass, they invited first the young women who are thinking about religious life, and then the young men who are thinking about the priesthood, to come up onto the stage, and the archbishop said a prayer of blessing over them. It was beautiful to see how many young people are open to God's call for their lives!
