Sister Michelle Marie,
I just listened to your interview. I am smiling broadly. Your words are inspiriting and heartwarming. Your presence in our Religious Congregation as a Postulant has already spoke to our Sisters and me how very much you love the Lord and all who you meet. You have brought much joy and love for many of us as you ministered to the sick and elderly in our Community during your past year as a Postulant.
May this next year be one of continual growth and learning day by day. The world needs you and so do we.
God bless you and your family!
