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:

I had like three. :P In one of them they were re-designing the postulant outfit and I was the guinea pig.

That one, at least, I was glad wasn't real. :P


I have so many dreams of being a Dominican in the Carmel

When you go see Catching Fire and the first thing in your mind after it's over is "Oh no! When the third movie comes out, I won't be able to see it because I'll (if I get accepted) be in the convent!"

(Anticipated release for part 1 is November 21, 2014 and part two will be released on November 20, 2015. Entrance will be August 2014.

All for Jesus. ;)[/quote\]

Just saw the Hobbit Part 2 with my Bestfriends and as they said "we have to catch the next premiere in 9 months" and that was my exact thought! I won't be here!! Hahaha

When you go with another 5 young girls to a monastery in order to make a surprise to the sisters for Christmas, and in the train you prepare the christmas carols you are about to sing to them. And when she saw us, the Mother Superior said: "What a great bunch of postulants!"  :nun:

When you catch yourself singing Latin and chant in the shower. Lately, it's been "Pange Lingua", what I know of "Dies Irae" (don't judge me), "Veni, Veni, Emmanuel", and the Dominican "Salve Regina."

NO SHAME.

 

And when your friend describes the color of the habit and you scream the name of the community and it's right...and then your friend be all :blink: "Um...yeah"

Oh my gosh, this happened to me!!! (Only not in the shower.) I was on line at a museum to get my coat from the coat-rack, and this woman in front of me turns around and says, "You have a lovely voice." I was completely confused until she told me she had heard me humming the "Sicut Cervus." (Not only was I singing without knowing it, but I was singing Latin! :winner:)

Was it the crazy Sicut Cervus by Palestrina? That piece is CRAZY! I'm convinced that Palestrina must have been a genius to compose something like that and have it sound beautiful. The melody never stays with the same voice part! :wacko:
