On the feast of Our Lady of the Seven Sorrows, September 15, His Eminence, Raymond Leo Cardinal Burke, Prefect of the Supreme Tribunal of the Apostolic Signatura, visited the foundation of the Sisters Adorers in Switzerland on the first anniversary of its establishment.

Located in the Diocese of Basel, Switzerland, quite near the border with France, the House of the Eucharistic Heart of Jesus is nestled in the Alps, which provide a very appropriate atmosphere for prayer, work, and community, in the spirit of the Sisters’ Patrons, St. Francis de Sales, St. Jane Frances de Chantal, and St. Madeleine Sophia Barat.

The Institute’s Prior General, Monsignor Wach, and several Canons and seminarians were present to welcome the Cardinal and to provide the liturgical assistance for the Pontifical High Mass and solemn blessing of the religious house. The Sisters beautifully sang the Chants of the Mass, and many local faithful, including the benefactors who donated the house and property to extraordinary event. After the Liturgy, a chamber concert was offered to mark the occasion, and the Sisters prepared a splendid meal in honor of His Eminence. On the tour of the convent the Sisters were able to show to Cardinal Burke the needlework and embroidery projects which form an important part of their daily Ora et Labora.
