Where Are You In Your Religious Discernment?


Recommended Posts

Benedictus, praying for you!!!!

 

Staretz, I am so happy you have found a community where you seem able and ready to put down roots.   God is good.   I think they are blessed to have you... and you to have them.  A Benedictine needs a place for to be rooted.... it is at the core of Stability, isn't it!

 

I am glad you are working on the garden and Fr. Aidan on the community.  One day at a time.

 

Do you still do any cooking?   I know you had gotten to be pretty expert with bread and cookies... not necessarily in that order!

I have been accepted into postulancy with the Sisters of Life. My entrance day is in 9 months on Saturday, September 6, 2014. :) Thank you for all your prayers!   Gloria in excelsis Deo!

I've been accepted by a Benedictine house in the UK and we're currently working out a date for me to arrive.

Put in my notice at work. Going to go spend a weekend with my sisters (whom I haven't seen since before Christmas!) the day after I get done! Then I'll have a month off, then I'll enter.  :)

I'm not sure where to put this--I can't find the Random Vocations Thread, and I don't seem to be able to send private messages, either.

 

I'm aware that there are at least 3 PMers (correct me if I'm wrong) who are preparing for entrance in the next month or so:  Domenica_Therese, ToJesusMyHeart, and LoveLetsLive.  I'm not on here very often, so I wanted to tell each of you (while I had the opportunity) to please know that you're in my thoughts & prayers as you begin this next stage in your discernment process.  May you experience much grace & joy during these coming years.

Discernment is starting to really annoy me now. :annoyed:

 

After the discernment retreat in April, I thought that I was called to marriage more then anything but now I am not so sure. I have questions that are not easy to answer. With school starting up next week, I won't have much time to explore my options.

 

Maybe I am reading to much into things but then again maybe not. :unsure: :unsure: :unsure:

Focus on school and wait for things to unfold in your heart. You can't pull on a plant to get it to grow faster - you just have to be patient and let the thing grow in its own way and its own time.

Just sent an inquiry asking if spots are open for a retreat at the Motherhouse... I've talked with them before and things have been going well but it's still early yet. Right now I'm just looking forward to visiting them. So, if you could pray for me that would be great. :)

One week until my monastery trip for the feast of the Assumption!  :)

 

It's the first time I will have taken 2-3 days off work during the week for the past several months so that will be nice as well.

Make that 4.

 

I haven't really been on Phatmass much in the past few years so some of you newer faces (there are a lot of you!) might not know about me.

 

Anyway, I have been contacting and discerning with a particular community of Poor Clare Colettines for some time. In February, I received the necessary paperwork for applying to enter. I worked on those papers and sent them back, finished, during the next 3 months.

 

I'm going to be entering near the end of this month and I'm very excited about it.

The Sisters are almost done sewing "our" postulant jumper, etc.
