Many Vocations

During the days leading up to her Feast Day on September 30, I had learned some details about the life of St. Thérèse of Lisieux, also known as Saint Therese of the Child Jesus. She lived in the late 1800’s and came from a very prayerful family. I was surprised to learn that she had 3 sisters who also joined a convent. I thought how foreign that would be in today’s world. My mom’s friend came over today and said over the weekend she spoke with her cousin who is now in her 90’s. She is a nun and she has 2 other sister’s who also were nuns. My mom’s friend also has 3 cousins who became priests. And even more surprising, 1 of them is considered a martyr as he was killed in South America while he was spreading the faith. I thought how faithful and generous these families were who entrusted their children to God in such a way.

I Found God today in families who gave many children to Him through religious vocations.
