Ask a Postulant: What are Instructions?

Sister JulieAnn Sheahan

October 05, 2019

Franciscan Sisters of Christian Charity Postulant Mary Jane responds to questions regarding her own life and her journey to be a Franciscan Sister.

What are Instructions?

Instructions is every Tuesday and Thursday, where for about an hour I meet with the team members Sister Mariella, Sister Paula and Sister Mary Kaye. We discuss ways to grow in holiness, how to deepen one’s prayer life, and how to build a relationship with Jesus and become a disciple and live the life of a disciple everyday.

We just finished reading Apostolic Exhortation Gaudete Exsultate of the Holy Father Francis on The Call to Holiness. I really enjoyed reading the words of Pope Francis. He had very solid ways to strive to holiness and become a saint by opening your heart to Jesus and asking him to help you to be a little better everyday. Next book is Pray Always by our own Franciscan Sister of Christian Charity, Sister Evelyn Schumacher.
