The joy and simplicity that I saw in the Cloistered life of Carmel and the freedom to live it with like-minded people all called by God. The very life of prayer spoke to the inner core of my heart. That in every moment we are with the Beloved and He with us! I always longed to be helping in every area and felt the stress of not being able to give more.

Religious life is not always easy or as we would like it to be. I can say it is joyful and rewarding, but not without a love for the cross. It is my hope that one day I can espouse myself to Christ more fully in Carmel and be at the Service of God’s people and the Church.
