What do you mean I can't bring all six cats with me?

 

Probably wouldn't be a deal breaker if the person wanted to join a Franciscan community. :hehe:

Do I really have to cut off all my long hair when I get the veil?  How will I braid it or put it up?

 

Can I go to the mall on weekends?

 

I'm not here to be a nun forever.  I'm just here long enough to get a free education.

I like to get tattoos to mark milestones in my life. Will you let me go to the tat parlor when I become a Novice. I'm envisioning the community motto intertwined with some flowers, my new name or something like that. My back or ankle would be a good place, no?!

If I profess perpetual vows does that mean I don't have to pay alimony and child support anymore?

 

I can teach you all so much! :)

LOL

Actually, this doesn't seem like an unreasonable request if done for the right reasons and in the right setting (privately with VD or Superior).  If you get a letter from your doctor, they might allow you to bring it.

Do I really have to give up caffeine?  If I don't have 5 cups of coffee, I can't function.

 

Your Sister chef doesn't know how to cook.  Can I bring my personal chef?

 

Can I bring my DVD player?

I have a girlfriend in town.  Just letting you guys know that I am also discerning marriage.  Don't worry, though - I'll definitely make a decision before professing perpetual vows.

 

I think the chapel you offer Mass in is not very pretty.  I have some ideas for how to improve it.  I think you might attract more vocations that way - you're lucky you at least have me and the other guy, Dave.

The chapel is so bare!  You need some bright colors and pictures to spruce it up.  How about Thomas Kinkade?

 

Do I really have to take the vow of poverty?  How will I ever buy anything?

 

Does anyone really take the vow of chastity anymore?  Can't we just omit that in case I decide I want to get married?
