My vocation story
As an undergraduate at Marywood I noticed an IHM Sister in a small group of individuals conversing. I really could not believe she was a nun. She broke ideas I previous constructed about nuns. She seemed so relatable, joyful, and relaxed- the beauty of this IHM Sister flowed from her interactions with others in the group. This observation was monumental.
What I love
about the Catholic Church
First, the social teachings provide a way to connect this day with the way that Jesus lived out his life. Second the tools to examine one's self and do the work to live a life like Jesus. I love that there is a vocation to service through religious life.

Favorite Scripture passage
Matthew 6:22-23, especially the Message translation. “Your eyes are windows into your body. If you open your eyes wide in wonder and belief, your body fills up with light. If you live squinty-eyed in greed and distrust, your body is a dank cellar. If you pull the blinds on your windows, what a dark life you will have!”
