Here’s what I saw on the first day of our St. Thérèse of Lisieux novena.
In case you missed it, our family is praying for increased vocations to the sisterhood (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 Conference in Des Moines. Not only did I see a whole bunch of nuns in habits, but I had a terrific conversation with a few Franciscan sisters from Peoria, Illinois who I had met at the Behold Conference in March. The sisters were “womaning” a booth in the exhibit hall and told me they were receiving great feedback and interest, more than usual, from passersby.
All a gentle confirmation from the Holy Spirit to keep on praying. I’m excited to see what’s in store on Day 2!
