Confession: the only stream that satisfies

“Father, forgive me for I have sinned.  It has been two weeks since my last confession.” I fidget in my chair for a moment, playing with the black skirt of my postulant uniform, and glance up at the picture on the opposite wall. It is an extreme close up of one of my favorite bible…

Find Your Humanity! (Beauty and the Beast Style)

I’m sure someone has written about this already, but my cursory internet search came up with nothing, so here’s my two cents: Beauty and the Beast screams Theology of the Body.  I had this revelation while watching the new live action version.

Waiting on the World…at the DMV

Dear Sir, what’s your story? I left the golden island for streets of gold.  I left the warm beach for cold concrete.  I left hopelessness for a chance at happiness.  I left empty pockets and took a chance with these empty hands.  Family?  I left a daughter and a little one on the way.  I…

Can't Anybody Find Me Somebody to Love?

Tonight I was talking to my friends about my future plans of nunhood.  I’m growing to love these conversations because they make me really examine my calling and sometimes even help me see it from a new perspective.  Besides the usual questions, one of my friends expressed genuine surprise at my life choice.  She pointed…
