I learned of your journey via JVL of The Bulwark. I'm an agnostic who strives to do unto others what I would have others do unto me and just generally serve the least among these.

Your explanation of the thoughtful choices behind the components of your religious habit was really moving. It suggests a group of women who have devoted a great amount of thought and prayer to how they can best serve those they feel called to serve.

A key reason people like me are disincentivized from joining formal religious groups is the feeling that many perform those services in attainment of a goal shared by all their peers, but that goal is not the care and nurturing of our larger community.

You restore that lost faith.

I’m a victim survivor of clergy abuse. You are so needed and I’ve often hoped the Lord would raise up a community during this painful time.

As a devotee of the Memento Mori Devotion, I rejoice in the prominence given to that in your habits, Sisters. Prayers as you continue to discern through the darkness and affirm the light.

What does anawim mean?

I saw further down in the comment thread that you're putting together a collection of prayers to pray with you for reparation. I'm eagerly looking forward to seeing it. I've done some research into the spiritual realities of abuse in the Church (I'm going to be "that" person and include a link to my write up about it), and been horrified by what I found. This apostolate is so desperately needed. However I can join you in it, I'd like to.

I grew up in a parish dedicated to St. Therese, so your dedication reaches me. I wish you blessings from our Lord in the Eucharist, His Blessed Mother, and of the Doctor of the Little Way.
