At the age of 13 I felt God calling me to be a Sister. This happened during a visit to the Blessed Sacrament when I was taking the high school freshman application tests. I had never thought of religious life before. I always wanted to be a nurse and a mother with many children. I don’t know how to describe what happened in that chapel. It is hard to describe religious experiences sometimes. But, I know God squeezed my heart there and I came out knowing that I would be a Sister. God nourished my call during frequent visits to the Blessed Sacrament.
How would she express her life as a religious?
I have done many things and worn many hats as a religious and God has always been there to give me all of the graces I needed to do the work at hand. God is always so faithful.
The most special moment in her life of religious consecration:
The most special moment in my life as a religious was when I made my public,
life-time commitment taking the vows of Poverty, Chastity and Obedience and our covenant commitment of Fellowship in the Spirit. My giving of myself totally to the Lord was sealed and signed, and I keep that document on my wall where I renew my commitment frequently.
