The Cutting of the Hair During an Investiture

Tuesday, April 09, 2013


Her hair is cut during the investiture ceremony, symbolizing renunciation of self and world. These are the Adorers of the Royal Heart of Jesus Christ Sovereign Priest, the feminine branch of the Institute. The ceremony took place on the Feast of St. Joseph, 2013, in Florence, presided by His Excellency, Monsignor Giovannetti, Bishop Emeritus of Fiesole.

Why is it not their Mother superior doing the cutting of the hair?

Because the Bishop cut only a symbolic lock of hair, after the brides of God go on retreat with their Mother Superior who retreat with the Mother Superior who cuts their hair and helps them to wear the white veil as Novices.

The novice in the photo here published is Sister Justine-Marie of the love of the united Hearts of Jesus and Mary, from Germany. The other four novices are: Sister Ivitza-Marie of the Mercy of the Royal Heart and Sister Joseph-Marie of the Sovereign Sacrifice, both from USA, Sister Philomena-Marie of the Sacred Hearts of Jesus and Mary, from Germany too, and at last Sister Thérèse-Marie of the Pierced Heart of Christ the King.
