Nunapalooza: Religious Life is Alive and Well

Blog Published: June 30, 2014

The convent was abuzz this weekend with celebrations of all sorts! And not just among my own nuns but it seems it was a nunapalooza for many congregations! My Facebook newsfeed was filled with photos and links and congrats to sisters celebrating their jubilees as well as to women professing vows, being received as novices, and entering as candidates and postulants!

Becoming a Nun: Reordered Affections

Blog Published: December 16, 2013

"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.
