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.  :)

Apathetic...I've discerned with certain communities, each time thinking that they were the community for me...now I'm a little discouraged but still searching. I have a community in mind that I'm planning to visit next year so we'll see.

I'm no longer discerning religious life even though I still feel attracted to it because I recognized that God probably isn't calling me to that vocation.  I'm still discerning Consecrated Virginity and Third Orders.  :)

Currently discerning with one order in particular. I've visited them a few times this year but am planning for a longer stay over the next few months. In the meantime I need to work on paying off my student loans; a time not without stress but also very rewarding.

donde?

 

I'm deciding to keep the specific community a secret for now. I'm trying very hard to not get my hopes up by over-fantasizing, and trying to just let God do what He wants. Discretion is the best way to keep myself in check. But depending on how the come & see goes, I might tell y'all. :)

Just heard from my psychologist who did the evaluation for my application. He said he believes one of the tests I took was invalid, so I need to go see him again this week and take an alternate test. 

 

I could be wrong, but I see this as the devil trying to attack and get me frustrated/discouraged/etc...but it's not gonna work! I'd LOVE to take another psych analysis! :P

 

He said he had some urgent foster care cases to deal with, but now he will put my report at the top of his to-do list and hopefully mail it sometime this week after I come in. 

 

Prayers would be appreciated!

:)

I am entering February 7th 2014 to the Poor Clare Monastery in Barhamsville VA.

 

Congratulations!  What wonderful news to come home to  :nun3:

 

As an aside, my final paperwork after a year of formation will be submitted on Friday.  It goes to the Order of Malta headquarters in Washington, D.C. for their approval, and then on to Rome for final approval.  God willing, I will be invested as a Dame of Malta next October (yes, when dealing with Rome, things move rather slowly),  Please pray that all goes well and that my service work to the poor and for the defense of the Faith will be accepted without any problems.  Then we'll have another "Dame" on the board!

I just got off the phone with Sr. A, and she says they have a council meeting next week in which they will review my application. I should expect either a letter or a phone call about their decision in about 2 weeks. 

 

Prayers that I don't get too anxious about it. Fiat mihi secundum verbum tuum!

Exciting! My best advice is try not to think too much about it. You'll only drive yourself crazy. Maybe now would be a good time to pick up a new hobby, knitting perhaps?
