Sera – Who Always Wanted to be Near Me

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)
