Sisters of the Holy Cross

We were yesterday at Balasar where we saw some sisters of the Congregation of the Holy Cross. Knowing the importance of the Holy Cross appeared at Balasar and the continued martyrdom of Blessed Alexandrina it makes perfect sense the interest of the community on this Beata.

"The Canticle of the Cross can be sung with the Angels only by those who truly love the Cross."

Eternal rest or eternal song

We enjoy the message we put here on the 13th October: good singer Alexandrina would soon sing hymns to the glory of God.
One of the prefaces of the Mass concludes:
And so, with the company of Angels and Saints, we sing the hymn of your praise, as  without end we acclaim:
Holy, Holy, Holy, Lord God of hosts!
Heaven and earth are full of your glory!
Hosanna in the highest!
Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord!
Hosanna in the highest!
This way of conceiving eternal life, because it is also it, is much more motivating than the "eternal rest among the splendors of everlasting light."
Our Earth tiredness does not need an eternity of heavenly rest...

Who will sing with the Angels?

In the beginning of October 1955, few days before her death, Alexandrina hears the announcement of her departure. 

Today, 2nd October, the day of the Holy Angels, I felt that someone had touched in my shoulder and I heard Angels singing. I asked:  
Who will sing with the Angels?  
Our Lord answered:  
- You, you, you, soon, soon, soon!
