We are called to give of ourselves in order to receive, to empty ourselves in order to be filled. How then do I come to know that I am doing so? The call to religious life is about sacrifice for the love of Christ. I must learn to trust in the Lord's guidance and Providence so that I may let go.
I find that it is a lack of trust which leads me to have reluctance and anxiety about taking action. Help me Holy Spirit to get the strength/trust to act. Amen

- I am a Hopeful Bride of Christ and I long for the day I can dedicate all of my life to Him. I have been actively discerning religious life for about 4 years now and I have been accepted to enter the Sisters of Mary, Mother of the Church. I hope to begin formation soon and beg your prayers that my student loans do not keep me from entering. With your help and prayers I hope that my entrance to the SMMC will soon be reality. Rest assured that you are all in my thoughts and prayers - most especially those young men and women discerning their vocations, whether to the religious life, priesthood or married life. Please keep me in your thoughts and prayers as I continue this journey toward Him.
