How would you describe your Poor Clare life? Are you fulfilled?
"Am I fulfilled? ...strange paradox. Can you arrive at self fulfillment without self emptying? I have the capacity to transcend. In self transcendence I am focused on the other and on God. Now I am being led by values - these are chosen. This gives me my true identity."
"It has often been said to us "what a wasted life." True- Jesus, too had to contend with those words "why this waste?". But love doesn't count the cost. Love is its own justification."
St Francis' inspirational words to the Lord " You are all my riches" gave me a deep insight into what our poverty is."
