Sister Michael Daniel
Kingston, Ontario Finally Professed
I've had Jesus in my heart all my life, thanks to my fantastic family. Jesus has helped my family out in numerous ways and it is amazing to see the miracles He has given us. It is truly through family events that I have felt called to follow Jesus.
I felt the call about 4 years ago and I began to investigate what religious life was all about. As I began speaking with Sisters and visit communities, I felt very eager to enter an order. The call was strong. I definitely felt the call, the summer of 2002 at World Youth Day. It was truly amazing to see all the religious orders that were represented.
I was ready to apply to enter an order, when something was drawing me to visit one more order, the Sisters of Our Lady Immaculate. It was an order I had not experienced before. They were in habit and truly devoted every minute of their life to God. They live their vows in a positive way and live in community. I visited with them a few times, applied, and entered on September 8th, 2003.
So much has been lifted off me. I feel comfortable and happy to have found my place with God. If you feel the call to follow Jesus, follow your heart. Speak to your priest and start talking to Sisters. Never give up and always remember, Jesus is Awesome.
