My Friends Are Crazy
Posted 04 March 2012 - 03:08 PM
So, last Wednesday I led the first Fierce Female Saints Study over fro-yo before our Catholic Campus Ministry meeting. On our way to the CCM meeting, I accidentally let slip about my discernment (well, they wanted to know how I have so many nun friends).
Now they are referring to my discernment and "top 3" list (which constantly shuffles) as my "Bid Card." --> I did mention they're sorority girls, right? <-- And they have the idea that once I figure out where I'm to end up that they will have a nice little "trousseau party."
When you told your friends you are discerning, did they have weird/silly/funny reactions?

I have a couple of friends who want to go on a pilgrimage as some sort of bachelorette party.
At least they're supportive

And out of marzipan she had modeled a nun that resembled me with the habit And put right on the top. So everybody who did not know that I was going to the convent, knew it! (since there were ppl as well that I did not know soo well, since they were friends of my friends, etc.)
That was really crazy!! She spend HOURS in the kitchen!!

Haha, well, my friends think I'm crazy, but I've been told some really sweet things by grown-up ladies at my Parish. I always said at my big goodbye thingy, I'll put on "Single Ladies" and "Can't Touch This", the two perfect songs for a future religious.
MC HAMMER'S U CAN'T TOUCH THIS??? oh yeah!!

Other than that, my brother says that he is going to take me out and get me super drunk before I enter Seminary. I'd like to say that it wont happen, but it most probably will... hahahaha

My friends' reactions were pretty weird and funny in an expected sort of way. I had a few chastity jokes, and a lot of questions about the freedom to leave. (Actually the range of reactions really brought home what living in a post-Protestant culture does to you - if Christianity was what they think it is, I certainly wouldn't be a Christian...)
And then I lost a whole bunch of friends. I guess they just found it too much to get their heads around. But one of them, the least likely in a lot of ways, stuck by me like nothing else, and has become my best friend. She's a radical socialist feminist - but she brags to her friends about me! So that's been the weirdest, but for all the best reasons. Love trumps.

Most of my friends are the reason why I'm discerning in the first place so to them it was no surprise.
