Sacred Heart

July 11, 2006

This summer, while studying Spanish in Mexico, I stayed with the Sisters of the Eucharistic Heart of Jesus.
One of their big feast days every year is the celebration of the Sacred Heart of the Lord.
Part of the festivities was a small biblical skit taken from the Song of Songs,
in which Jesus comes as the Beloved who knocks on his bride’s door.

The sisters asked me to play the part of the Sacred Heart… who can refuse a Mexican nun? 🙂
Here are some pictures :

Some of the sisters on the feast day of the Sacred Heart. They have really beautiful habits.

Sister Amelia, playing the role of the bride who hesitates at her beloved's knocking.

Searching everywhere, she realizes that he has left.

The two of us at the end of the skit, with the two angels who are there to hold the door and narrate the story 🙂

I could not resist the temptation to pose in front of their Sacred Heart statue, haha.

Me standing in front of a really cool little representation of Our Lady of Guadalupe appearing to St. Juan Diego.
