Hi, all! I know I haven't been on PM in...well, FOREVER. I haven't fallen off the face of the planet, I promise. I'm also not in the convent.    I am, however, preparing for my second DSMME retreat

So this is the post where I tell you that I got application papers and am a candidate.   I got application papers and am a candidate.     (P.S. I didn't eat any of the cookies... :| I'm awkward

Working on applying to Benedictine! :) There are a few things that might get in my way, but my dad was so impressed with their theology department that despite the fact that it's out of state and a pr

Make an appointment with the confessor that you like and explain the situation.  One girl who was in your situation said the confessor just talked with her for awhile and asked her to come back the following week so he could get to know her better and he would write the letter then.  I think with the priest shortage, these things are not surprising.

I hope everything you have to get done will go smoothly. When or if obstacles come around then its especially good to remember that everything comes together when its His Will, and it will be in His time. Then I remember that when obstacles may come in the way that it doesn't mean that this or that isn't what He wants, but that I need to be praying for faithfulness and perseverance in what I know to be true in my heart and to be attentive to His workings of grace making everything come into place. I just love to see and contemplate His grace working in myself and others. At this point for me I look back the last year especially and I see things that have changed and how everything is coming together and I pray that you'll be seeing these things in your discernment! :) Its nice to mention to that when we do go through trials and the waiting faithfully, then when we do get to where we need to be when the time comes we are even more thankful and fervent in His service. You know all this already but its nice to think about these things again and again. Prayers! :)

The parish secretary wrote mine and had Fr. B. sign it. Fr. B. knows my parents but not me, so he at least knew that my parents aren't some schism-causing heretical hippies. :| I think what I have will be fine!

I might have missed this elsewhere, but how are your parents with all this convent preparation? And wider family/friends? :) Edited by marigold
