Christin Tomy, May 27, 2016 – Global Sisters Report
In a little less than a month I’ll make my first profession. The date has been chosen, and the invitations have been sent. The liturgy is planned. And I’m not sure I’m ready.
Oh, I’ve prepared. For three years I’ve studied, prayed, and journeyed into the life of the community. I’ve been accompanied by sisters who have lived their vows twice as long as I’ve been alive and have tried to absorb a tiny fraction of their wisdom. I’ve explored the congregation’s deep story and tried to remain open to the stirrings of Spirit within. When asked whether this is what I choose, I have wholeheartedly responded, “Yes!”
