You Know You Are A Future Nun Part 2

Recommended Posts

You're talking with one of your favorite brothers and a sister of his community, and your brother addresses one thing to you in particular and in doing so calls you "ma soeur" ("my sister", the customary way to address a sister in French) before quickly correcting his slip.

That happened to me when I was staying in the monastery. After a day they stopped correcting themselves and just called me Sister the rest of the time I was there. :hehe2: 

 

When your plan for new years eve is Adoration starting at ten thirty with benediction at midnight followed by Mass. I'm so excited about this! :woot:

If you write a note to your sisters and accidentally sign it, "Sr. Trini" before correcting it.



-when you see two young girls receiving Communion very reverently and you imagine what great sisters they would be.

 

Imagine Sisters. :|

Lucky you! My plans may be the same; I need to wait and see when the brothers post next week's schedule . . . Wait, no I don't, they already posted it and I took a picture so it's in my phone . . .

 

Okay, my New Year's Eve plans are: 8:30 vigils and adoration chez les soeurs (the sisters), mass at 11:00 (communion around midnight ;) ), and then a little hot chocolate social chez les freres (the brothers). Awesome! I'm so spoiled here. And I suppose I may be a future nun, too.

 

(Edit: Why, when I type "a-w-e-s-o-m-e", is it coming out "amesome"?)

It's the f.ilter. :)

 

I went to Midnight Mass on Christmas and then to Adoration at 8:00 that evening! :nun:

This thread needs a bump!! 

 

You know you're a future nun if you're hanging out with they young adult group after the TLM and totally out of the blue someone whom you've never met says "oh, so what community are you discerning with?" :eek: Yeah that happened today, or when after spending New Years Eve in the church from nine to one thirty for Adoration and Mass you then decide to get up after only four hours of sleep so you can go to the TLM and celebrate the octave of Christmas/feast of the Circumcision all over again! 

You know you're a spiritual mother for priests when: the tabs that are constantly open on your computer are spiritualmotherhoodforpriests.blogspot.com, Vultus.stblogs.org, Cathoic Quotes on Priesthood, and Called by Name (right now it's particularly open to his talk he gave on mothers day about spiritual motherhood for priests), You have a doc. saved on your desktop titled "Spiritual Motherhood for Priests prayers" and it includes multiple prayers you've found from either the Handmaids of the Precious Blood or Vultus and you really want to print it so you can add it to your daily prayers (sadly my printer is out of ink at the moment :( ), and when your desktop pictures are various pictures of priests you've found online with applicable quotes added to them. 

For example:

When your best friend keeps reassuring: 'don't worry about it.... your Boyfriend will take care of it...!!'

 

When you get rid of half your clothes and stuff in your room like three years in advance because you can't wait

 

When 'Beloved' by Tenth Avenue North makes you cry and your head nods the whole way through

 

When your wall posters are of saints and you have quotes from the Song of Songs all over your wall

 

When you realize that your daily schedule looks more and more monastic

 

When all you read is saints novels

 

When you cry and cry because you are too young to enter or need that degree first, and every day is an age!!!

 

When you don't care about cutting your hair off - in fact you want to cut off the first piece yourself!!

 

When your diary pages are full of lame poetry and love letters to God...

When you feel pleased with yourself for just having slipped another hint past your mother: "Why do all these sisters get named Marie and Mary and Teresa and Therese and Faustina and Faustine? Then I can't remember their names anymore because they're all the same. If I ever become a nun I'm making sure Mother Superior knows I do not want any version of Mary, Teresa, or Faustina anywhere in my name or I'm leaving. ;) ". Mom replied to the message it was in, made no mention of religious life. Mission accomplished. :)

When you drive up to a monastery (monks, so I wouldn't really be able to enter there) and think, "Home!"

 

When you get back to college and spend your first day sewing and wondering why on earth you're even still in college.

When your PP chooses you as one of six 12 year olds for a special outing "because there won't be many of these in your future in the Cloister, will there?"

This long before I ever mentioned anything like becoming a nun to him.

I do that a lot.... My class has gotten to the point where, when someone had to say something about me, he said "I think she was raised Catholic." He was wrong, but it was funny fantastic and I'm going to be Catholic soon.... (As Father said to me this morning, it isn't too long until Easter! :nunpray:)

 

When you're the youngest person in the parish who attends daily Mass and Adoration regularly.

 

When a couple thanks you after you stop to pray with them when you're in the cathedral.

Every week at youth group...whenever a question is asked, "TRINI KNOWS!" 

 

:| 

 

:doh: 

 

One time we played a game where four corners stood for different answers and one kid said, "JUST FOLLOW TRINI!" They didn't, but I totally should have run to the wrong corner every time if they did... :evil:

 Hahah! That's so funny! I always try to answer everything the best I can, but it's not always easy trying to explain the Holy Trinity in a few minutes!  :proud:

 

...when you send Christmas cards out and half of them are to religious sisters!  :nun2:
