Why I became a Carmelite Sister DCJ
It begins as an unquenchable thirst, a restless longing for “something more.” Then the question arises, “How can I ‘prove’ my love for God? How can I satisfy this desire to give Him . . . ALL?”
The journey always begins with the first step.
I want to be your hands. I want to be your feet. I’ll go where you send me.” It was while singing these words at a Youth Conference that I first opened my heart to God’s call. I joyously told God that I would do anything for him — get married, be a Sister, ANYTHING!
When I turned a teenager, I left behind the things of God and the Church. And with this I went searching for other things to fill me, but these vanities, these superfluous things left me empty.
