Hey! I've been discerning a religious vocation for the past 3 yrs. I really feel the life of a sister is what God is calling me to, but my family doesn't. I really need their support. How can I tell them, and show them, this is what I'm called to? Will they ever come around?

Awesome video! Carly, it's obvious you like fire!! The Easter Vigil is my favorite Mass of the whole year too:) And Chelsea, those are my favorite books to read as well:)

Can you answer this question in your next video: What was the hardest part of adjusting to convent life and what did you miss the most from back home (besides your family)?
Thanks!

St. Faustina is my confirmation saint, too! So cool!

Can you share with us your vocation stories?

Do nuns ever fuss over their appearance? Obviously they aren't going to spend time applying makeup or anything but do they still get hair cut/ styled ever, etc.?

Hello! I just want to say that your videos have been helping me SO much.
I have been discerning a vocation roughly my whole life, it has always been something I want. I am fifteen now, and I am feeling VERY impatient to just find a convent and enter it already!! What can I do to slow down and be patient for the Lords will to be done?

Wow! Thank you so much for these videos!! They are so helpful, as I am discerning a vocation, and I am really considering your community.
I am eagerly awaiting the next episode!!! :)

Just stumbled upon the videos. They're great! I hope they inspire a lot of women to the religious live. Since you answered what your favorite religious texts are to read, do you have time for "non-religious" texts, and if so, and if so, do you enjoy mysteries, thrillers...or poems?

When you wear a habit do you have to cut your hair really short or does it not matter?

Sara said...

How often are you guys able to visit your family and do you still have to wear the habit when you're there?

Keely said...

Do you guys exercise in habits?

Timmy said...

what is the charism of the Pauline order?

Brittany said...

How many habits does one sister receive? I can only imagine how dirty one can get after wearing it every day.

Jael said...

so now that you ladies are in the novitiate, do you get habits?
