What is a Monastic Tonsure?

June 03, 2021

The Monastic Tonsure (or Profession) can be seen as the mystical marriage of the soul with the Heavenly Bridegroom, but it also can be seen as a second Baptism, inasmuch as the very ceremony parallels the actual Baptism ceremony. The chant "Thy Fatherly Arms" is performed by the Festive Choir of St. Elisabeth Convent.
