You are mine!
I felt the Lord’s call at the tomb of St Paul, while I was on pilgrimage in Rome with other young people. During Mass, I heard the Lord say in my heart: ‘Karin, you are mine! First I did not know what to do with this. A short time after that, when I met Mother Julia, our foundress, I knew that the Lord called me to the religious life in the Spiritual Family The Work. After praying and speaking with a Sister and a priest, I said my ‘Yes’ to the Lord. I entered and I have been very happy in my vocation!
If you think that the Lord might be calling you, pray about it, receive the Sacraments, do not hesitate to ask advice, and know that the Lord wants your happiness! As Saint Pope John Paul II said: ‘Do not be afraid’!
