Never give up…

Thank you all for your prayers recently- now messaging from Tyler public library where I once again came to visit Sr. Margarita, founder of Briggitines Servitores. This time I am able to be honest wtih everyone — hopefully— and who knows, my vocation might be activated yet…Well, God Knows. Maybe all the job loss and family problems are part of a message I need to hear on some level….

About morningprayer

I am a convert living in central Florida, attending an independent traditional Catholic Church in Orlando. Converted in 2001. Immediately felt vocation, which really I had felt for years before but world got in the way of converting. I was 54 at the time. Searched 15 years for place to live vocation, expensive and painful, much travelling. . Now 70. No real trad order or convent for older women. I get it in a way, but in a way don't get it. Still working on my hurt and how "unfair" it is, but I'll get over it. I guess. I guess I'm supposed to be a hermit-like person. My church 43 miles one way, and I can't always drive there on I-4. Mass including the drive is a 5- hour thing, per the traffic and getting there on time. Look, this sounds self-pity, but really I'm just trying to adjust to being "old". Which I don't feel....Anyway, there are NO trad Catholics nearby. So I read and meditate and watch some homilies online and so on. It's going to be OK. I'm trying to let go of worldly promises and material things, as well as my desires and demands, hear only HIs voice. Please pray for me, as I for you.

  1. Praying for you, MP. Hang in there!

  2. My prayers are with you, MP. Know that when all else seems lost, Our Lord is still there ready to help.

  3. I’ve been back a couple of weeks. this time it is falling into place. I’m looking at settling my life here – not a small thing for an older woman – and moving to Texas as an oblate with Sr. Margarita. And after a year, maybe entrance as a novice. It’s just happening in an indescribable way. You all who know me remember what happened with the fake priest in 2007–almost killed my faith and almost killed my body. For this to come to me now, 8 years later, is so incredible there is no way I can NOT do this.
