I once sent a letter to a monastery that was not responded to for more than 5 weeks. They were two hours away by car. Sometimes retreats and other events get in the way, or maybe they just had a mail rush. Don't worry, and you're not stupid.

It can be very hard for religious to answer mail quickly, even vocation mail, because they only have so much time that they can write... they've got to go to prayer, meals, and other things throughout the day which can restrict their time... it just makes it slow. I wouldn't worry about it. You are definitely NOT stupid... It's good to be honest. Any decent religious will appreciate your honesty. I'm sure they will get back to you. :flowers:

No, you are definitely not stupid! As a nun myself, I'd like to assure you that honesty is always appreciated, that dyslexia is no big deal compared with the grace of vocation, and yes, nuns can be "bad" at answering mail. I often feel swamped myself: we get lots and there is so little time to fit everything in. One of my correspondents memorably began a letter with "I so treasure the letter you wrote to me three years ago . . ." Oh dear! Edited by Digitaldame

Verbum!

Religious life is [i]really[/i] busy, and sometimes things just have to wait. Don't worry :)

Don't spend another minute thinking that dyslexia makes you less capable. Focus on all the gifts God has given you. We have a sister here who entered at 18. She recently told me that she has dyslexia. I would have never known. She is so talented in other ways, who cares if her reading isn't the best. She cooks, sews, makes rosaries, can tat (make) lace, embroiders, and tell the funniest stories! Not to mention how kind and loving she is. There are always things you can do to get around having dyslexia. So stop worrying. The nun is probably just busy. Remember that you aren't the only person discerning that she is in contact with.

Perhaps having such a difficulty is Jesus' way of sharing His Cross with you. Don't worry about the nun not answering, like everybody has already said, she is probably really busy and hasn't been able to yet.

I know what it is like waiting, though, and not hearing anything back. It can feel awful.

Many communities have their annual retreats around this time of year. It is also a very busy time for vocation and youth events. She may be away from the convent at an event or she may be on retreat.
Just give her a little more time then try again.
If your dyslexia were really a big problem they would let you know, they wouldn't just stop replying to your e-mails.
God bless
