Director of Mother Cabrini League
When I was young, the word “missionary” always fascinated me, so I prayed to God that one day I would have some experience [and opportunity] to work as a missionary.
On my first visit to the Missionary Sisters of the Sacred Heart, I knew that God was calling me to be a “Missionary Sister of the Sacred Heart”. Since I joined the order, I am very thankful for my vocation. I do believe that is a special call from God.
From the Gospel of John: “Do not let your hearts be troubled. Have faith in God and faith in me.”
For me, prayers are the first awareness that God loves us. I say that some of us are afraid to give God a chance for Him to communicate freely to us. My special time for prayer is the morning, sitting in a comfortable chair, preferably, in front of the Blessed Sacrament with Holy Scripture. To be available to listen to what God wants to communicate to me I need to be in a place of silence.
In community life there are, at times, some obstacles, but that does not make me feel as if I don’t want to live in community. I am convinced I became better person with some challenges in community life.
I like that the MSCs are international culturally. That we work with the people.
Reflecting on my life, nursing was my preferable ministry but it is many years since I’m doing other ministries and I’m happy.
Am a very big sports fan.
Pray and listen very carefully to God.
Not to be afraid to say “yes”.
