Ten Things For An Aspirant Not To Say

Recommended Posts

Spem in alium

"I 'want' to be a nun so I don't have to work."
I really heard that from someone when I was starting to discern, they were like I don't like to have to pay the electric bill.

 

:unsure:

 

Your vows are so....archaic. Can't I just invent my own and take those?

I love your order, but I really hate your apostolate. You guys need a serious revamp.

Why is formation so long? I'm already sure I want to be a nun. Can't I just make my perpetual profession now??!?!?

All ora, no labora, hahahahahaha!

I was chuckling along as I read these, but I was also thinking, oh dear, I've heard almost all of them in one form or another...
