Boston Catholic Journal - Critical Catholic Commentary in the Twilight of Reason


Is God Calling Me to Be a Nun?


A Cloisterd Nun - the Bride of Christ


Questions! Questions!
Rising and falling in my heart.
How? Why? When? Where?
What is this restless wave that passes constantly over me?
This urge to know ... to love...
to know ... to love !

Questions! Questions!
Rising and falling in my heart.
How? Why? When? Where?
Where is this relentless searching leading ?
Speak to me O God!
Will my pulse ever beat out
the rhythm of question laid upon question ?
Will I never know peace?

Questions! Questions!
Rising and falling in my heart.
How? Why? When? Where?
My days, my nights, reach out for meaning,
for purpose.
What is it that stirs deep within my being?
This reckless discontent of an existence lived
without a goal.

Questions! Questions!
Rising and falling in my heart.
How? Why? When? Where?
I look around me, all will pass,
how fleeting and frail is my span of life,
on what will I spend my time? my strength's?
my weaknesses?
Will I scatter my life for others?
Will I surrender myself to my God ?
Or will I wander on aimlessly through many years
and let life pass like sand through my hands?

Questions! Questions!
Rising and falling in my heart.
How? Why? When? Where?
Deep within my being I sense a lover's call,
I feel a persistent touch of grace,
a whisper, a divine whisper penetrates my soul.
"I am the Divine Answer to all your questions,
I am the answer to every question your heart
can ever bring to birth, I am Divine Love.

I am the Divine Answer to how ...
My beloved, by My grace!

I am the Divine answer to why ...
My Child, because I desire you totally for Myself ,
for by our union many souls will receive life!

Chosen one, I am the Divine answer to your when!
NOW!! ... for every call, begins NOW!
At this present moment ...

I am the Divine Answer to your where ...
Trust me, place your hand in Mine
and I will lead you where I will have you go ... my Beloved!


A Cloistered Poor Clare Colettine Nun

Totally Faithful to the Sacred Deposit of Faith entrusted to the Holy See in Rome

Scio opera tua ... quia modicum habes virtutem, et servasti verbum Meum, nec non negasti Nomen Meum 
I know your works ... that you have but little power, and yet you have kept My word, and have not denied My Name. (Apocalypse 3.8)
