Out of Sync – Out of Sorts

by Sr Nunother  

There is a natural rhythm to monastic life, framed by the liturgy of the hours, the wearing of a habit, set meal and bedtimes, and periods of silence. These are wonderful and necessary, but I’m aware of my own predilection for structure. When routine is interrupted (and it often is), I become out of sorts.  This week forced me to think outside myself, to pray for those most affected by Hurricane Sandy, and to realize just who it is that ultimately calms the storm.

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.
