Praise Jesus!

Let Jesus be praised! You have found the U.S. postulants' blog for the Daughters of St. Paul! There are three of us and we just entered on the feast of the Queenship of Mary on Aug. 22, 2007.

Julia is 26 and entered from Northern VA, but is originally from outside Cleveland Ohio. Alina is 23 and from Miami, FL. Emily just turned 21 (we celebrated only a few weeks ago with the community!) and is from Buffalo, NY.

We have so much to share and can't wait to get started! This blog will be a place for us to share about our new life and things we are learning about the Daughters of St. Paul! Please feel free to leave any comments that you might wish. We pray that this blog would be a forum to share God's love and glory in true Alberione fashion- through means of the media!

We thought "Let Christ be formed in me" would be an excellent title for our blog. This is one of both St. Paul's and our founder, Blessed James Alberione's, mantras. As women in formation, we are truly trying to keep this in our mind and prayer. But even more so since we are women seeking a Pauline charism!

Please keep us in your prayers! Feel free to leave us your prayer intentions as well. We will be updating this blog (God willing!) weekly, with each of us (Julia, Alina, and Emily) taking a different week. You will be able to get all of our perspectives on our new life. God bless you for reading!

Peace in Him,

I have enjoyed reading your blog. I can't wait until you put your photos on too so I can attach a face to your names. When I pray for the members of our communities I can better remember you. Great job! I look forward to hearing more from you all. God bless you.

Little Sisters in the Divine Master, welcome to the Pauline Family and to the Blogosphere! What a grace to be able to share your formation journey here in this new media.

While I am not a formal member of the Pauline family, the Daughters of St. Paul hold a very special place in my life and faith journey. I am encouraged to see that the community continues to be growing so strong.

May each of your journeys and your journey in common be grace-filled, blessed, and filled with the Spirit's love and light!

Congratulations for entering postulancy. Let us pray for each other, I am discerning a religious vocation, and the Daughters of St Paul holds a very special place in my heart too. Keep up the good work.
