Decision!!!

Sunday, March 29, 2009

My dear discerning friends, I haven't been around the 'blog for nearly a year, for a number of reasons, but now I have exciting news to share with you! I have just been admitted to begin my aspirancy with the Passionist Nuns of St. Joseph Monastery in Whitesville, KY! God willing, I will head to the convent in August of this year.

I am excited, thrilled, happy, content, grateful, relieved...you get the picture...to have finally received clarity in my discernment. Three weeks ago, I made an eight day retreat of the Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius, in which the Lord made His will very clear to me, and a week ago I received the letter from my future Mother Superior accepting me into the first step of their formation process. Deo gratias! He is so faithful!

Let us continue to pray for each other. I especially beg your prayers for my family, who is taking this news very hard.

That's great news!

I also am looking at them, feel very drawn to them, and hope to visit soon. Although I've sent for information from them and haven't yet receiving anything although it's been a month.

So...when you first contacted them, how long before you received a response?

I'm so happy for you!
