Yes, 42 years ago, on August 5th, a Saturday and the feast of Our Lady of the Snows (now called the commemoration of St. Mary Major), I flew from San Diego via American Airlines to JFK, stayed in the terminal for a few hours because of a thunderstorm (had supper with my Uncle Richard who my mom alerted) and then onto Boston. We (Sr. Mary Thecla and another aspirant) arrived very late. If you can believe it, Mother Paula and two other sisters met us on the tarmac (before the days of jetways). The late-night drive through the Callahan tunnel terrified me. Luckily, that didn’t last.
What a gift the Pauline vocation is for me and for all members of the Pauline family of congregations founded by Bl. James Alberione.
I want to thank every person who has supported and influenced me in these years. Join me in praying that young women will continue to hear the call to follow Christ more closely in religious life – especially in the congregations of the Pauline Family.
Bless you all and thank you, Jesus.
What a ride this has been.
