In the Name of God. Amen.
I, Aidan William Owen, desiring to consecrate myself fully and entirely to our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, make to Almighty God, before the whole company of heaven, and in the presence of you, my brothers, the threefold vow of Stability, Conversion of my ways to the monastic way of life, and Obedience in the Order of the Holy Cross, steadfastly intending to keep and observe the same for the period of one year, the Lord being my helper. And I pray for the grace and heavenly assistance of the Holy Spirit, for the intercession of the Blessed Virgin Mary, of our Holy Father Benedict, of James our Founder, and of all the saints; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

It was a beautiful, moving day. Thank you to all of you who have offered support, encouragement, love, and challenge over the last two years. May God, who has begun good works in each of us, bring them to completion!
