I need to tell my parents that I think I am called to cloistered life. This is going to be hard because the monastery where I am thinking of applying to is in Louisiana…far from NZ. And it is Dominican. My parents will be allowed a maximum of 9 visiting days a year. I am thinking of applying for next January.
I’m still a bit confused as to what God wants. I had always felt kind of called to the Poor Clares as well.
I am asking for major, full-on prayers about this. I pray for strength, courage, insight, peace with whatever outcome happens, and for the grace to TRUST and have faith in our Awesome God. I ask for our Lady to intercede for me and for me to imitate her “yes” Also, for the intercession of both Saint Clare and Dominic to lead me to God and live as He wants.
And thanks to the parents who answered the other thread I put up! it was really helpful
