The earliest memory I have of the first inklings of a call to religious life was in high school or college when a few people here and there mentioned or wondered about religious life for me. A priest in Confession even mentioned it one time. These encounters poked something in my heart and piqued my curiosity at the idea, […]

Sister Therese Michael

My journey of discerning becoming a religious sister began in 2019, the summer after I graduated high school. It was at a Steubenville East conference in Lowell, MA. Sister Miriam James asked the women in the room to quiet their hearts and to ask Jesus if He was calling us to be a religious sister. […]

It is Jesus in fact that you seek when you dream of happiness; he is waiting for you when nothing else you find satisfies you; he is the beauty to which you are so attracted; it is he who provokes you with that thirst for fullness that will not let you settle for compromise; it […]

Except for the light illuminating the crucifix above the altar, the chapel was pitch black. Suddenly a violent banging sound, the strepitus, resounded through the chapel. The strepitus signifies the violent death of the Lord, and is performed at the end of the night offices during the Triduum. I was ten years old when I […]
