This is pretty cool. A friend alerted me to this video of a young woman entering a Carmel.
You young women out there, think about it.
I don’t think that God is calling fewer women per capita to religious life than He did before. Fewer can hear it for the din of modern life and the horrid expectations and images placed in women’s minds and hearts in this twisted world.
In each age since Christ’s Ascension, people have felt they were in the End Times. They were right. In any moment, when the conditions are right, the Lord could return.
Considering what is happening in the world now, I am pushed to think about the way Mass is being celebrated, even the number of Masses being celebrated. Many more people went to confession.
Once there were many communities of contemplatives, spending time before the Blessed Sacrament or in contemplation, in collective and in private prayer.
Who can know how they lifted burdens from the world and turned large and small tides by their prayers to God for mercy and in reparation for sin?
