QuoteOne of the reasons I had been dissatisfied with the Order was Vatican II's emphasis on Orders shifting over from the contemplative to social action. This meant that monasteries were being penetrated with a different spirit.
QuoteMuch as marriage appealed to me, much as I enjoyed the company of boys, I knew I didn't really love the fellows who had ring ideas. ... For a while I thought a husband was the answer. God would bless a wife who chose to do her husband's will.
QuoteSometimes I considered marriage and a family. But these intervals were short. In hours of prayer and quiet reflection my big discovery would rush in upon me and overwhelm me. To be a sister was to be a bride of Jesus, to exchange nuptial vows with Him, to enjoy His special affection in this world, and to follow Him in heaven with a song that only virgins sing. [cf. Apoc. 14:3-4]
