What Do You Want Your Religious Name To Be?


Recommended Posts

My thoughts change all the time on this. Currently: 

 

 

-Sr. Gemma Elizabeth Joy of the Visitation
but if my name is required to have a Marian name: 
-Sr. Mary Elizabeth Joy of the Visitation
and if those don't work out:
-Sr. Mary Catherine Gemma of the Crucified Christ
-Sr. Catherine Elizabeth Gemma of the Precious Blood
-Sr. Mary Gemma Elizabeth of the Passion of Christ

 

So what this means is that I don't really know after all.  :cool:

I was also thinking about Sr. Jerzy Mary (or Jerzy Marie) in honor of Bl. Jerzy Popieluszko. 

 

I've also considered:

 

Sr. Mary Gabriel (for my Patron Saint this year, St. Gabriel the Archangel, and for Sr. Mary Gabriel of the Sisters of Life who helped me so much when I reverted to the Church)

 

Sr. John Paul

 

But if you asked me today what I wanted to be named, it would still be:

 

Sr. Miriam Elizabeth of the Divine Mercy (or Sr. Mary Elizabeth)  :)

And my brother just suggested (as a joke): Sr. Small Snoop (or its equivalent in Latin) His fiancee calls me that, because I called myself that while talking to her in the third person one day, and she liked it. (I can just see a letter coming into the convent addressed to "Small Snoop"... :hehe2:)

I am keeping the full names a secret until I submit them to Mother. The title that I would like for either is these names or whatever Mother gives me is Of Our Lady of Sorrows. Of course our Lord may have different plans and I end up with neither names and a waay different title.

Do you receive the name right as you enter postulancy or when you are clothed as a novice?  I know some orders are different.  :)

If I become a member of a Third Order or Secular Order (Franciscans or other), and we can take a name in religion, I would like:

 

Miriam Elizabeth

John Paul

 

If a title is added at promises, I'd add either:

 

of Divine Mercy

of the Visitation

 

The Visitation is my favorite Marian feast day but I also love Divine Mercy.  I'd be nice to combine John Paul of Divine Mercy since he was beatified on the feast of Divine Mercy last year.  :)
