My beloved Sera (short for Serendipity), entered the Paradise Cloister on October 10. 2022.  She was 18 years old.

Sera always wanted to be near me, jumping into my lap whenever I sat or lay down!  When I went to bed at night, she would lie on my chest and purr me to sleep.

Sera’s favorite verse from the Bible was “Love one another, as I have loved you.”

Novice Clarissa Anne offers this verse from the Rule for Sera:

“As we progress in this way of life and in faith, we shall run on the path of God’s commandments, our hearts overflowing with the inexpressible delight of love.”  (Prologue 49)
