|Me with the new dog, Sammy|
Since entering the community I have grown to love and deeply respect the Felician Sisters, not only in their commitment as Franciscan women, but also in their commitments to the Church, following in the footprints of St. Francis and Blessed Mary Angela, and committed to the spiritual renewal of the world.
As Franciscans the Felicians have helped me to be a better steward of the earth, making a conscious effort to choose a lifestyle that takes the environment into consideration. I've learned to clean with vinegar and baking soda rather than products that hurt the environment. As a house we rarely eat beef and try to buy locally grown produce, if possible. Just recently we had a class on nutrition and since then I've been keeping a food journal hoping to make healthier choices in what I eat, praying to be a better steward of my body. I've only been a novice for three months, but physically I feel much healthier than I have in years.
