This Random Nun Clip is brought to you by A Nun's Life Ministry. We are here on a Motherhouse Road Trip with the Carmelite Sisters of the Most Sacred Heart of Los Angeles and our guests, Sister Timothy Marie and Sister Faustina.

Sister Faustina  
Thank you so much.

Sister Timothy Marie  
Very happy to be here.

Sister Maxine  
As you moved forward in your religious life -- now, I understand you've been a religious for a couple of years.

Sister Timothy Marie  
Now, I know you can't tell. [laughter]

Sister Maxine  
Was it your 50th Jubilee last year?

Sister Timothy Marie  
Yes, it was.

Sister Maxine  
As you've grown in your vocation, what are some other ways that you have found now that you are able to be in that close relationship with God?

Sister Timothy Marie  
I remember that an older sister -- when I was a very young sister, I just made my vows, and I was going through hard times. I always have hard times and they get better, hard times they get better, hard times they get better. So those of you young out there, I know you go through hard times, but just know they get better -- until another hard time. [laughter] But she told me, she said -- because I was crying. And I said, "I don't know if I can do this. This is hard for me. I don't know if I can do this. And she said, "You know, sister, I've been I've been a Carmelite sister for many years. And I just want to tell you something. Although at times, life gets very hard, the Lord gets more tender in his prayer with you." Once in a while, when I find a sister kind of struggling and crying, I pass that along. So I pass it along to you too -- those listening, those here in the audience.
