...if having to select lay clothes every day is seriously penitential. (The habit in my past is one of the best gifts I ever received. I can't help but wonder if there mightn't still be one in my fut

When you finally tell your brothers in your community that you're going to be entering, and they're leaping with joy, and can't contain themselves in telling you that they've felt this for a long time

When you tell your mom that you're going to the convent this evening and she asks if you're coming back  :hehe2:

You know you're a future Dominican or Franciscan if...

...when someone mentions our Holy Father Francis, you promptly ask, "Which one?"

 

 

When you see a BlackBerry on someone's desk and you immediately think of that of Sr Joseph Andrew and how she uses it to respond to discerners in search of their vocation.

I love these! :)  I'd give them props but I ran out...

 

When you have a Pinterest page devoted to nuns.  (Come to think of it, I have two separate nun pages!)

Oh goodness, where do I start?

 

1. When you get a present, you think, "So, to whom do I give this when I enter?"

 

2. You keep "your" nuns' website open, even when you're not looking at it.

 

3. Every time you type the letter B into the url box on your computer, the first result is "Benedictines of Mary."

 

4. You get a kindle for Christmas, and the very first thing you buy is Thomas Aquinas' "On Prayer and the Contemplative Life."

 

5. You are shocked when you find a convent website (yes, any order) that you haven't seen before.

 

6. You give a start whenever the priest talks about poverty in his sermon.

When part of what you're looking forward to over Christmas break (aside from visiting my brother) is visiting Sisters. (Not for discernment with them.)

When you're flying and wonder how close you are to a certain community. (A community which shall not be named.)

Hello everyone who visits here. :wave:

 

Please say a prayer for me as I am in the application stage to enter Carmel. I am praying for all of you discerning. A few thoughts from experience: Don't give up through any obstacles and be thankful through them all. When He permits obstacles and trials soon after we will see Him put all the pieces together to come to where we need to be both interior and exterior, wherever that may be for your vocation. Be always faithful. Thank you for your prayers! :)
