Dear Sister: How did you know?
How did you know for sure that God wanted you to be a Sister?
The short answer is "I didn’t." It was many years after I entered that I finally figured it out.
Before I entered I did hear God’s call in prayer. I didn’t want to do what God was calling me to do. I was fighting with God. What I discovered is that God won. I came to recognize that God was right. It was in religious life that I could best live out my baptism. It was as a religious that I began to study theology. It was as a religious that I would be exposed to different cultures and come to know all people as God’s precious creation. Who knows what I would have turned out to be if I had not entered the congregation. I am always grateful that God did call me to be a Sister of the Precious Blood and to become the person I am: hardly perfect, but striving to be the best follower of Jesus Christ that I can be.
