At Cross Purposes

By Sr. Nun Other

The idiom “at cross-purposes” is defined as two opposing viewpoints with goals that interfere with each other. On many days, that would be God and me. I expect that life should be as I want it: free of anxiety-producing situations. (Hello, unreality!) God desires me to be whole and complete by facing and walking through my fears, not alone, but with Him. Jesus said, If anyone wishes to come after Me, he must deny himself, and take up his cross daily and follow me. Luke 9:23  In retrospect, the crosses I’m given are wonderfully light and perfectly designed.

About Sr. Nun Other

May 16, 2012, completed my 30th year as a Sister. It was both a milestone and just another day in an interesting journey. Some of those thirty years included singing with Gloriae Dei Cantores, marching in Spirit of America band, and serving on our Sisters Council. As a monastic, I live surrounded by beauty and within a frame work of opportunity and possibility. I'm sixty-four (much to my surprise) and extremely grateful for my life as a sister - past, present, and future.
