Monastery of Our Lady of the Rosary, Summit, New Jersey. Radical Love. September 2014. As part of her Solemn Profession ceremony, 28-year-old Sister Maria Teresa’s black veil is replaced by Sister Mary Martin and Sister Mary Catharine. Following, she will receive a simple gold band, much like a wedding ring, as symbol of her vows and final commitment to God. Having entered the cloistered monastery seven years ago, Sister Maria Teresa has chosen to lead a hidden life of prayer and ritual, removing herself from the outside world in order to focus on the spiritual realm and a higher calling--praying to save all souls.
