"I am so normal..."

"I finished high school, went to college, and I came up against relativism: the idea that we can't--people said that we couldn't know what was good, what was bad, what was true. So I really began questioning where truth comes from. Where does goodness come from? I know I have values. Who gives them to me? And so between that moment and here, it was a process of 'This is scary, I don't understand this. I don't see why I would be called. How can I be called? I am so normal."

Sister Amelia, O.P. (she just made vows this July!)

One woman's "yes" changed the world.

Will yours?

Answer the call.

When you have fallen in love with God, everything doesn't seem quite so important anymore.

sadness, no. sacrifice, yes.
