Dominican Vision Annual Report 2017-2018 Index
On the Cover (see above)
This inset from Queen of the Rosary Chapel windows at Sinsinawa Mound contains an image of St. Peter kneeling at the feet of Christ making his profession of faith. This gesture, portrayed by the artist, Sister Teresita Kelly, OP (1914–2010), evokes the profession of every Dominican since the time of St. Dominic. The sisters, friars, and contemplative nuns each place their hands in the hands of their prior or prioress as they make their profession of obedience to the Rule of St. Augustine and the Constitution of their respective communities. It is an act of humble surrender and trust in the Providence of God.
