Like many other Catholic women, the idea of becoming a religious sister came to mind. Even those who aren’t Catholic are curious about it. Who wouldn’t be? It’s natural to be curious about lifestyles that differ from your current one. Of course, I questioned at times whether or not that is what God is calling me to. I prayed over it and even made friends with some sisters. They’re amazing and a blessing to have in your life! But as much as I support that vocation, it wasn’t one that I felt completely drawn to. In my heart, I still have the desire for marriage and raising a family. I do believe God placed that desire in my heart.
But there is a vocation that I didn’t learn about until a year ago, and that is The Third Order.
Question for thought:
- What can you learn from Lexie’s story or the idea of third order religious orders?
