I was just googling some info to use for something on the permanent diaconate and somehow landed on a blog (having nothing to do with the diaconate) that mentions the solemn profession in 2007 of a Sister Elizabeth (turns out this was a profession of a Poor Clare nun in Hanceville AL - Mother Angelica's order). This is what it said:


Sr. Elizabeth lay prostrate behind the grate, covered by the funeral pall and surrounded by her Sisters holding wax tapers. The Litany was chanted and the pall was sprinkled with holy water, after which I spoke words over her, which included these: “…cover with the shield of Your protection this Your servant whom You deigned to select from the entire number of the Flock, as a Good Shepherd, to preserve the crown of perpetual virginity and chastity of soul, and to prepare her for every work of virtue and glory with the aid of Wisdom, so that, overcoming all enticements of the world, she may merit the indissoluble union with Your son, Our Lord Jesus Christ…”


What I read quickly was "Sr. Elizabeth lay prostrate behind the grate, covered by the funeral pall and surrounded by her Sisters holding wax paper!! LOL


Now - back to what it was I was actually looking for...... ;-)

May the road rise up to meet you.
May the wind be always at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face;
the rains fall soft upon your fields
and until we meet again,
may God hold you in the palm of His hand.

LOL! Ruth, I probably would have read it the same way if you hadn't bolded the words. Too funny!
