I am so moved by this beautiful story. How utterly stunning she looked in her habit as a novice, full of joy and grace! I have been thinking about this story and, having been in two communities, I am wondering if there is a difference between European and American communities as far as keeping a sick postulant, rather than sending her home. I am quite sure my two communities would send a postulant home rather than keep her through illness. I certainly applaud Sr. Magdalena's community for keeping her and allowing her to first be invested in the habit and then profession when she was close to death. The story speaks for itself as to the validity of this decision by her community. I was wondering what others on this phorum have to say about American communities doing the same.
