Well...how do you know? Today, we had our Pauline vocation day here at the convent. We had two young women visiting us. Our guest speaker was Sr. Emi Magnificat. We began our program at about 1:00pm after the arrival of the women. After a brief visit in our chapel and some social time, Laura, Jackie, Sr. Emi and the young women proceeded to the Postulants' study room for our sharing. Sr. Emi shared her vocation story and thereafter we engaged in a discussion of various "religious life as a vocation" questions. It was enlightening for all of us present. Laura and Jackie also had a chance to share a bit about their vocational discernment journey. At the conclusion of the presentation, we provided a handout about vocation resources that one could use. Key pointers to the vocation search included: Pray, Learn, Search, Visit and Act (www.scribd.com/doc/30131997). After our session, we took a "coffee break" where we enjoyed visiting with the young women as they got a chance to learn more about us. We concluded our vocation day with a time of adoration of Jesus in our convent chapel. Sr. Emi guided our time of adoration by sharing with us the Pauline way of making a Holy Hour following our spirituality of Jesus Master, Our Way, Truth and Life. We thank God for the opportunity we had to share our life with the young women who came to visit us...so when are you coming?
P.S. O Jesus Eternal Shepherd of our souls, send good laborers into your harvest!
