The long wait

Recommended Posts

vee

Praying for you. Also ask for St Edith Stein's intercession. She had to wait 11 years to enter!

Yes she is probably one of the most recognizable people with quite the wait time!  Even though Im at about half her time I can relate to her with  that as well as the fact that she was a modern working woman.  She knew what it was to get up and go to work, to have bosses and coworkers, to earn a living for one's self.  As much as I love many other saints I cant relate to them in that aspect because they didnt do those things!

I also like what you said in some other thread about offering up the waiting time and Ive certainly been doing that.

Many prayers for you Vee as you continue your discernment. I hope that all goes well with your Doctor's appointment.

Why would you ask St. Edith Stein?  She'll probably make you wait 12 years! Ask St. Teresa of the Andes...she entered right after finishing school...wasn't she like..just a teenager?  ...oh wait....then she died 9 months later!  

 

:/  St. John of the Cross?  Nope, he got beat up and kidnapped by the renegade carmelite friars...

St. Teresa of Avila?  Yeah, if you want to travel all over your frozen tundra founding communities left and right with nobody wanting you around!

The Martyrs of Compiegne?  Um...maybe not...

 

that leaves ....one other....saint.....

 

 

the OTHER Teresa!!!!! :o:o :o 

 

 

How about Saint Nuno of Saint Mary!?

Dear Vee, I really admire your courage. Myself have been waiting for a congregation for 3 years. As compared with St. Edith Stein, it's really a short time.

I also heard that Blessed Maria Virgo, the first Superior General of Holy Spirit Missionary Sisters, waited for 7 years for the new congregation to start by St. Jassen Arnold. She began to work for SVD at her age of 30, and entered the new congregation 7 years later.

I have heard that, if you really like a congregation, God will help you and open a way for you.

So, don't be discouraged at any rate, God must have the best plan for you. Just pray well for your health and vocation, and be assured of my prayers for you as well, my dear sister in Christ. :pray:

Dear Vee,

May I know how long have you been waiting for this congregation, and what did your SD say?

Can you find a good doctor beside you?

My SD said WAIT, BE PATIENT!!

Can I find a good doctor? I hope so!  I meet her at the end of November so hopefully things go well.

Not to be selfish or anything but I'm a tiny bit glad that we get to keep you around here a bit longer! :)

I do hope the doctor appointment goes well. Finding a good doctor can be a challenge. For the past 4-5 years I have not had the same doctor for more than 1 year. (I've moved multiple times, changed insurance, doctor left etc). It is such a pain to try to find a new one, hope that it works out, and get all of my medical records transferred. 

 

(Also IT it is SOOOOOO good to hear from you!!!!!!!)
