On October 1st, 2012, the feast of St. Therese of Lisieux, Imagine Sisters launched the One Rose Invitation, a campaign for the faithful to personally encourage young girls and women to consider a vocation to religious life.
The One Rose Invitation was inspired by St. Therese, the patron saint of Imagine Sisters, who said, “After my death I will let fall a shower of roses.” We asked everyone to think and pray about a young woman they know who they think would make a good religious sister. Then, on the feast, they were to let her know by offering her a single rose. The rose was a symbol of the invitation to consider religious life, as well as an acknowledgment of the beauty of that young woman’s soul.
We’re proud to announce that Fr. Will Prospero has joined the Imagine Sisters team as a resident Chaplain that will be here to answer questions and pray for discerns. Continue reading to learn a little bit about Father Prospero in his own words.
St. Therese, the Little Flower, is known and loved by people all over the world . . . and she has been interceding for Imagine Sisters from the beginning! St. Therese’s feast is October 1st, and we are praying the St. Therese Novena starting Saturday, September 22!! Novenas are an ancient tradition in the Church of 9 days of prayer for a particular intention. St. Therese promised to send down from Heaven a shower of roses, responding to the prayers entrusted to her. We are asking St. Therese pray for the One Rose Invitation, to send down a shower of vocations to the religious life, so we can have countless new sisters to help bring the light and love of the Christ to the world! To help you remember to pray the novena prayers each day, you can sign up for daily emails from praymorenovenas.com The official intention for the Novena is the One Rose Invitation! Join us in asking our friend St. Therese for help–we are confident she won’t let us down!

Recently this question was on Facebook in regards our photo of Sr. Mary Joseph (above). Fr. Will Prospero, SJ sent her a great response:
Thank you for your question. God has one spouse, and that is the Church, or the Bride of Christ. Individual members of the Church are called to embody that spousal dimension in their relationship with Him.

The beginning of my discernment was a moment of imagining sisters, literally. I actually hallucinated sisters.
