    Kayte Discerns (An Ongoing Journey)

    Hiya Pham. Finally took the plunge and ordered tickets to fly to discern with the sisters! Honestly I'm so nervous, and a little frightened. It feels like this is the last chance I will ever have at religious life (even though I'm quite sure that's not true). I've also been growing in appreciation of married life, and might be confusing that with a call (also cute Catholic boys don't make things any easier). I am excited to go in retreat in early September and hopefully the Lord will speak loud and clear. Please pray for me as I prep for this retreat, physically, mentally, and spiritually. Work has had some bumps in the road, but I have talked with my leadership team and my doctors (as the bumps were mental health related). We've gotten things all figured out, and it's smooth sailing now. I started working from home today, and it has done a lot to ease my anxiety. I'm going to continue to pray for you all, and please pray for me!

    Trump Is KKK

    Trump opposes genocide, free and unfettered abortion is extremely racist. Many people do not approve of abortion and have worked to change the law. This does not make pro-lifers racist, nor does it make president trump and the Republican Party , racists for supporting the pro-life movement . The Democrats on the other hand promote and encourage the genocide of the poor and underprivileged United States citizens. Trump pointing out the hypocrisy of the ultra left wing Democratic Party is fair game.

  9. Imagine all the cops like this who never get caught. “That is not mine,” she said. “No, sir. No, sir. What is it?” As another deputy who arrived for backup teased her that she was about to go to jail, she responded tersely: “It d a m n sure ain’t mine.” https://beta.washingtonpost.com/nation/2019/07/11/florida-cop-meth-drugs-arrests-scandal/?outputType=amp
  10. I'm curious. If other communities--well established and so on--are already doing these ministries, why is a new community necessary?

    Trump Is KKK

    “Yesterday the president pinched out a steaming pile of tweets against freshman Representatives Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York, Ilhan Oman of Minnesota, Ayanna Pressley of Massachuttes and Rashida Tlaib on Michigan — known in DC as ‘The Squad,'” Of course Trump does not like ‘The Squad’ — he’s the leader of the rival gang, ‘The Klan,'” -Stephen Colbert

    Handmaids of Mary Immaculate

    I looked them up too.They are in the book Convent Life By Joan Lexau published 1964 by Dial press. You can also go to archive.org and search for A Guide to Catholic Sisterhoods in the United States, by Rev.Thomas P McCarthy.You can read the book for free on line.You can flip the pages and see all the communities, some of which like the Handmaids of Mary Immmaculate,, Society of christ Our king, Grey Sisters of St.Elizabeth and a few others are no longer here.The Grey Sisters of St.Elizabeth were founded in I believe Lativa, by some german women to help the poor and sick.The order is still around, but not in America. And yes, the HMI were supressed.Think it was all over issues with the Blue Army Shrine.

    New Community forming, Marian Franciscans

    Might have to try Google or Bing. Funny they are getting formation from the Sisters of charity, Of Our Lady,Mother of the church. I wrote to the sisters years ago. However due to my mom and later dad having health issues, I was unable to enter any community.Funny thing is, many years later, out of the blue i heard from them.They sent me a prayer book, and a Miraculous Medal key chain. I've sent the sisters some money to help them in their work.But it's really weird I should hear from them after all this time.Weird they still have my home address too. If I were to start a community, which i have thought of on occasion,though circumstances right now doesn't allow it., I'd have some sort of plan.Like visiting families in their homes, providing child care, teaching catechism, and working with authorities to provide care for abused children,especially emergency care. Activites, like the daughters of Charity and Little Sisters of the Assumption do. At least that's my thought.Especially the child care, since you read about so many horrible abuse cases.

    I love the photos. I know sometimes religious communities both men and women will often do baking to help support the community.Through eBay, I came across an engraving from a book about religious orders ,printed in the 17th or 18th century. The engraving was of a nun who belonged to the Daughters of Christian Union, think in Troyes ,France. The sisters were founded to convert families back to the church, especially protestant widows and their daughters. The community disappeared at the the time of the French revolution. I guess they joined other communities. Anyhow, one of the way they supported themselves was with making macaroons,etc.

    Daughters of mary,mediatrix of Mercy

    This is the website: https://www.marymediatrixofmercy.org
  22. When looking for another religious order, i can across the following sisters. The Daughters of Mary,mediatrix of Mercy. The foundress is Dr.Denise D'Attore, Head mistress of Regina Luminis Academy in Berwyn, PA. The plan is for the sisters to be school teachers, and women 21 to55 are encouraged to apply. The community is still forming, and has the blessing of Archbishop Charles Chaput, head of the Philadelphia archdiocese.According to the website, the sisters will wear a traditional habit. Forgot the website name, but Google their name and you can see the website. Also if you are discerning you might want to check out Face Book too. There are some african sisters,The Daughters of Jesus Our Shepherd who have a Facebook page.And there maybe more orders of woman and men too.

    This week's over-exaggerated circus of Trump's "racism" is brought to you by the main stream leftists media who don't want you to think about Bill Clinton's 27 trips to Epstein's Pedo-Island...
