[quote name='NisiTe' post='1889785' date='Jun 13 2009, 04:47 PM']I have many a Dominican outfits...and one Carmelite outfit, hehe[/quote]

I held up two dresses today and said, "Whaddya think, the Benedictine or the Carmelite?"
Black or Brown on the bottom, white on top.
Went with neither.

If one's wardrobe is an indication of vocation I'm headed for the Pink sisters

...someone asks you if you are in a relationship OR if you are dating someone???

...and you immediately think, "Yes, with Jesus.." but you are not quite sure how to put it into words...

HA! In my case I'd be SSVM.

Or perhaps you just tell people "Jesus is my boyfriend." ;)

One of my good friends (now a religious sister) had put "Jesu Cristo" in the "married to:" option of her Facebook profile. :lol: And yes, I must admit my first thought was, "Hey! I should do that!" (Even though neither of us are yet officially married to Him...) Hahaha!

And I would be headed for the Dominicans...

Ahh.. Dominicans.. is there anything they don't know?

I feel like I could fly right now seeing as I have found a wonderful Community that I just absolutely love and I'm really considering entering.. and they're Dominican :love:

Nope. ;) Except possibly the time of the Second Coming.

I'm "in a relationship" with Jesus of Nazareth on FB. My friends were really bored one day and created a very amusing profile for him. Once I enter, I'll switch it to engaged. :D

I used to go out and grab a Guinness with a Dominican Father at our local Parish in CA. We would then meet up with a Benedictine Father from the local Abbey and then have fun hearing the jokes about "a Priest, a Monk and a Jew are sitting in a bar..." At that time in my life I was still in the synagogue before I converted to Eastern Orthodoxy.

...you write a facebook status and know that one of your priest friends will be the first to respond...

...when he does comment on it, as does two other priest friends (and other friends, of course)...

Amen!

... your closest friends seem to all be priests or nuns :-).

... you attempt to give up looking and your spiritual director says "don't give up unless you're convinced that you're not called to be a religious sister"

... you cry at the idea of wearing a wedding gown at your future wedding with Christ :-)

... you keep getting called "sister" even in lay clothes

... you are constantly asked "are you a sister?"

... people continue to pass to you information about xyz or abc community

... at school or at home or at work you keep thinking about consecrated life

when, no matter how rough things get, how many times you enter and leave, how many times you, yourself decide, "I'm not being called, I'm content to live out my life out in the world..."

....God plops your Sisters right back into your path...

...when you least suspect it... they become part of your world again...


hmmm... I wonder what He is up to? :think:

:love:
