Sr. Mary Micheal

I know a sister by this name. She is most animated, sarcastic , "good thing I am a sister or I would so be saying what I think of your liberal agenda" person. But she is very dedicated to God.

I love Mary and the Teresas however I honestly dont think Im worthy of either name. I do know the ending I would like though and that would be (name) of Divine Mercy because without Divine Mercy I do

In my former community, I was "Sr. Mary Cause of Our Joy" (but in a different language). Months before the investiture, many of us began praying about our names. I wanted more than anything to have a sorrowful name, something reflecting Mary's sorrow at the Visitation and throughout Christ's Passion since as a Catholic I've always had a devotion to the sorrows of Jesus and Mary; however, whenever I brought this to prayer, I just knew [i]without a doubt[/i] that God wanted me to have a joyful name. I do believe joy is a part of my personal "mission", and well... I do sincerely love it. Throughout my time in the convent, I spent a lot of time contemplating joy. And well, some time later I figured out that joy and sorrow always go hand in hand, but it is the joy of the Cross that we must live and offer -- it was a win-win situation, I'd say. ;) And I suppose I always reflected on the Joy of Mary.. all her moments of great joy were always found within the shadow of the Cross. Like at the Visitation -- one of the "Joyful Mysteries", but also one of her "Seven Sorrows". I find that deeply profound.

I would still like Sr. Mary Magdalene of the Merciful Heart or Merciful Hearts :saint:

I read once of a dear nun (in a very large congregation) who was named Sr. Mary Circumcision & they called her Sr. Circky for short :blink: (Maybe it was a penance?)

I know of a Sr.Mary Pia of the Sacred Cross, and I know a Sr.Grace of the Merciful Face of Jesus Christ Crucified. I kind of like Sr.Maria Regina Anima meum, which is Sr.Mary Queen of My Soul, but I got the ending on Anima wrong. What is the proper ending for that?

Oh my goodness.. :shock: I think she must have a special place in heaven reserved just for her. :sweat:

I would at least have hoped that it was in Latin or some other language where one would have no idea what it meant... :blink:

God bless that Sister.

laetitia crucis

So, I've been pondering this religious name thing lately, and I think I'm down to these three (in preferred order):

1. Sr. Amata Veritas Mariae
2. Sr. M. Amata Veritatis
3. Sr. M. Amata Veritas

Please notice the genitives in #1 and #2. :evil:

[i]Nonchalant [/i]ways of adding a title in, doncha think? :ninja:

I guess it's a good thing I can suggest three names and "Mary" is a required part of the name given...

:whistle:

I would have always expected that you would want:

Sr. M. Laetitia Crucis

But Amata Veritas is beautiful! (Love and Truth). Very Dominican. ;)

Does a religious choose her name? I thought it was given to her by the superiors.
But I'm really ignorant on the subject!!

It really just depends on the community! Some will and others won't take suggestions.
