I miss all my Phatmass friends too, but I hear about many of you from the [s]spies[/s] ones who write to me! :hehe2:

You are all in my daily prayers too and you would not believe how often I get the phorum into conversation!

So can we ask you questions??? Like what is your favorite part of being a sister? (if you have one. :P )

Oooh okay, a few questions - Im here for about another 20mins.

Favourite part :think: Well, there is the overall feeling of being in the 'right place', living the life I believe God has called me to. But on a practical day to day level its praying the Office with my sisters.

Thank you for the update! Glad you have found your place. There are pics of the novitiate heading to Glasgow, and you looked so happy and peaceful. So reassuring to know of your prayers for all of us PMers. Be assured of our prayers for you as well!

God bless! Edited by emmaberry

Any difficult personalities you've had to deal with? How do you and the sisters resolve problems?

Are you now a novice or a postulant? And what kind of classes are you taking?

If you don't have time for too many questions I will stop asking. lol

Oh yes indeed - especially my own!!! Thats the thing with contemplative life, it brings you face to face with yourself in a way you dont outside, and you have to be able to live with yourself before you can truely give yourself to God, and love yourself before you can fully and truely begin to love God.

Other people? Yes of course at times, but again, you have to learn to love them, choose to love them, and if its really hard you have to love the image of God that they are.

Postulant, we have a years postulancy here.

We have 5 noviciate classes a week covering all sorts of subjects - scripture (my fave) catechism, liturgy, constitutions, Carmelite saints, etc.

Faith! I wrote back to your letter, but I need to write again. You are in my daily prayers. I am having mysterious medical issues that are now causing me emotional pain as well. I am at a very difficult point.You can read the story in Open Mix actually. Anyway, please pray for me, and I'm so glad things are going well for you. This thread just made my day.

I think you entered right around when I came here so we did not get to meet, but it is great to know that everything is going well for you. I will definitely pray for you and your Sisters daily.
