Vow chart

My vow chart from which I sang today at my solemn profession. After today, it is filed away in the monastery archives. The next time it comes out is at my funeral, when it will be placed on my casket.

Br. Martin is responsible for the beautiful artwork. I did the calligraphy--but not freehand. I traced over a guide. As they say, whatever works.

I will post more later about the experience. For now, I have more celebrating to do with my family members, friends, and relatives. It is a happy day!
