Watch EWTN’s Bookmark trailer brief of And Mary’s Yes Continues:


Pope Francis has described Religious Sisters as women of strength whose “spirit of courage” puts them “in the front lines in the proclamation of the Gospel.” The vocation to be a bride of Christ is a mystery to many people in the Church and the world today. And Mary’s Yes Continues seeks to dispel some of the confusion and to show forth the deep, hidden beauty of the consecrated life, which embraces the vows of poverty, chastity and obedience. Whether you are a priest, parent, candidate, or inquisitive teen, the Dominican Sisters of Mary, Mother of the Eucharist pray that this book will lead you to a deeper understanding and appreciation of this life-giving vocation.

When John Cardinal O’Connor first met Mother Teresa, she looked into his eyes and said, “Give God permission.” Isn’t that each Christian’s desire? That God allows us to be part of His plan of salvation is astounding. We are invited by St. Paul to “make up what is lacking in Christ’s sufferings,” and in the great mystery of the Church, Christ invites each of us to a unique role in the Mystical Body of Christ. Some bring Christ’s love in a radical way through the evangelical counsels of poverty, chastity and obedience, to a world where many have been ravaged by the culture of death. God invites these souls to live a spousal union with Him on this side of Heaven. Pouring out His love as balm, they prolong His Incarnation as His hands and feet, ears and eyes. If God calls you to live out this love; if this is how He has created your heart, be not afraid to “give God permission.” Love with freedom, joy, and reckless abandon. —Mother Agnes Mary, S.V., Superior General of the Sisters of Life

From World Youth Days to concerts, I have often had the opportunity to work with and meet Religious Sisters. Their grace–filled joy reminds us of the heavenly life we are all called to; by being a Bride of Christ, they show us what we all are made for! The visible witness of the habit and their life of order and prayer encourages us all to be visible signs of the God’s love and mercy in the world! We truly depend on the prayers of Religious Sisters, and they remind us to keep our eyes fixed on Christ! —Matt Maher, singer and songwriter
