I am a little stunned by the date today as well (Sept 11th). For so many it is a day of sad memories, but for me now, it is a day of great joy. I am going to offer extra prayers for all of those who have experienced loss on this day, and ask God to bless them. :nunpray:

Thank you so much. I have to laugh a little at how many times I have done this. I must nearly have graduated from discernment school by now, don't you think so? :smile2:

The good thing is that I have already lived with them for three months, so there shouldn't be any surprises for them or for me. If they didn't want me there, like the last Carmel, then they would surely have figured that out by now and voted against my entrance. So I am hopeful that this might be (finally) where God wants me. I sure do hope so. :beg: I was becoming a professional postulant!

I will definitely pray that you have found your true home, finally. It must be very difficult and humbling to be in so many places and still feel like God is sending you on a search again, but you've handled it well. You never gave up! May God bless you abundantly for your patience and courage. :)

Well, I can stop feeling jealous of those with countdowns now. The Prioress of the Nedlands Carmel phoned me tonight and said that the Chapter has voted to accept me into the postulancy. She said that the formator (Novice Mistress) would contact me next to discuss the entrance date and other details. :dance: I am very happy.

I am thinking that Oct 15th would be a great day to enter Carmel :clapping: (St Teresa of Avila feast day). I just wanted to share my joy with the pham.

Wonderful news! Deo gratias! October 15th would be great, but if you want it even earlier (but probably not practical) there is always October 1st for St. Therese.... Continued prayers for you as you begin your new journey.

No, Oct 1st is probably too soon for me to get things together, but that's ok. The Carmel here in Melbourne does a nice Mass for Therese's feast. I went last year and it was very sweet.

I am so happy for you and, like MM said, I also hope this will be your final earthly "home", so to say! You are truly an inspiration to me.

I'll be entering on October 7th. :nun: (However, I'll be flying out on October 6th.)

I love flying, and I even love being in airports. Hahaha!
