"All your affections are being reordered." I had no idea what Sister Margaret meant as she tried to give me encouragement in my early days of becoming a nun. I'd made the leap of faith to pursue religious life but was not at all ready for how I would begin to feel and "be" differently with the world around me.
Happy Feast of Saint Thérèse of Lisieux! We are delighted to have with us Sister Judy Long, OCD, of the Carmelite Nuns of Baltimore. It seems only fitting to have a Carmelite write about one of her own on this feast day!
