My Journey to Becoming a Sister of Mercy

Last edited 7th February 2013

I always thought I was going to get married. That’s not how most people would think discerning religious life would start, but that’s how my journey began. I was in high school when a teacher, who was discerning the diaconate, planted the first seed when he said, “If you’ve ever ruled something out, just keep it on the back burner.” I have no idea why I took this to heart except that it must have been an act of God because once I’ve made up my mind I can be kind of stubborn.

But that does not mean what most Americans imagine it means. It does not mean we have to believe, for instance, that the universe was made in six 24 hour days, or profess faith in talking snakes. Rather, by the "literal sense", the Church means we must read the text looking for what the author intended to say, the *way* he intended to say it, and distinguish from that what is incidental to what he was saying.
