For the last 2 1/2 years I have been discerning a vocation to the religious life. Last May an event happened while I was on retreat in Medjugorje that made me realise that I couldn't ignore it any longer. In September of last year I made a weeks retreat in the community of the above sisters, this was followed in February this year of a one month live in with the community.
This past weekend, I returned home and told my family and friends that I am leaving home to move to the community and beginning studying to become a redemptorist nun because I feel that this the the call of God in my heart.
Over the next month, I have to make the transititon from my old life to my new life and I am aware of the huge step that I am taking. I am feeling so overwhelmed by all my emotions and the practicalities of such a move.
I would be grateful for the prayer support of everyone during this phase. :)
