thank you, jesus, for consolations I asked for and struggles I didn’t. with all this I glorify you. amen.
no. a cleaning lady. I’m in cleaning lady school.
just kidding. yeah. I’m an aspirant with the Daughters of Mary Help of Christians (Salesian Sisters).
I won’t soon forget the events that took place in #ferguson…will you?
my plane touched down at 6PM. i attended a portuguese mass at 7:30 in some parish in newark. i finally arrived at mary help at 8:30 and was in bed by 9.
so here i am two days later. i am an aspirant with the daughters of mary help of christians.
this afternoon we’ll get our uniforms. i won’t be able to blend into a crowd anymore. i won’t be “just dylana” anymore. i am a representative of the institute, the church, and jesus christ. my life is no longer my own.
i’ve really be meditating on what this call means to me specifically. it isn’t just some vague thing. this is a personal and unique sacrifice. a call to live my baptism radically for the young people, with the young people. all this for jesus and mary.
i think i’ll end with a token quote from francis de sales: “be who you are and be that well.”
Please, please pray for the Christians in northern Iraq, who are facing BEHEADING, in the next few hours.
This request has come (via a family member) from the group ‘Open Doors’. Tagging many of my followers to please reblog asap, pray + share.
I woke up 15 minutes before my alarm went off while saying,” this is the day that the Lord has made. let us rejoice and be glad in it.”
praise be to you jesus, font of mercy.
