What attracted you most to the Hospitaller Sisters?
The charism of hospitality, the mission and spirituality of the congregation attracted me and this made me apply to join them and I believe that this step will help me grow to become a good Hospitaller Sister in the future.
Again, I longed and sought to give myself totally to God, to the rejected and the poor in society, with all my heart, mind and soul, and to deepen my relationship with God, so I was interested to know that this congregation carries out this mission of caring for these people. The fraternal life of the community and the prayer life of the sisters also attracted me to join them.
Briefly define the feeling you have now that you are starting your postulancy
I feel fulfilled because it is like a dream come true. I feel peace, happiness inside me and also the joy of working together with other nationalities, trying to learn other languages and cultures. I also feel fear of uncertainty, but not fear of regret. I feel joyful despite the fear of the unknown and uncertainty.
I also am happy because it is Jesus who calls me to serve him in this life and to continue my vocational discernment.
What do you hope to gain from this new stage as a postulant?
To learn and get to know myself, the congregation and the Church better, to try to be faithful to my vocation to myself, to my sisters in community and to others. To develop personal initiative and to be sensitive to the needs of others. Also to be humble, punctual and ready to welcome remarks or corrections whether positive or negative from others. In addition, be able to accept others as they are and try to cultivate team spirit.
How do you feel about entering religious life?
I feel that I have taken a good step and it gives me inner joy because now I have the opportunity to adore Jesus, meditate, share and participate in the Eucharistic celebration often, which brings me closer to Christ and helps me to continue to respond to his call. I am also happy to be part of this Hospitaller family and I am ready to embrace whatever the Lord is willing to grant me in this step I have begun in the congregation of the Sisters Hospitallers.
I feel very happy and confident in this commitment to declare my intention before the congregation and the Church to continue my vocational discernment. Also the joy of working together with other people, learning different cultures and also the community life which gives me joy.
What has surprised you most about this new journey that you are about to embark on?
What surprised me most about the new journey is the hospitality in the congregation, the charism, the spirituality, the values and the adoration of the Blessed Sacrament. I was also surprised to meet people from different countries, with different cultures and languages.
