Here’s what I saw on the first day of our St. ThÃ©rÃ¨seÂ of LisieuxÂ novena.Â
In case you missed it, our family isÂ praying for increased vocations to the sisterhoodÂ (there’s a really cool story about an encounter with a nun at that link, too!). Joel and I spent Day 1 of our novena being spiritually fed at the Christ Our Life Catholic ConferenceÂ in Des Moines. Not only did I see a whole bunch of nuns in habits, but I had a terrific conversation with a fewÂ FranciscanÂ sisters from Peoria, Illinois who I had met at the Behold Conference in March. The sisters were “womaning” a booth in theÂ exhibitÂ hall and told me they were receiving great feedback and interest, more than usual,Â from passersby. Â Â
All a gentle confirmation from the Holy Spirit to keep on praying. I’m excited to see what’s in store on Day 2!Â
