How did God make me to love?

Sr. Bethany Madonna is the vocations director for the Sisters of Life in New York.  She speaks without reserve about God’s love for all people and His redemptive mercy. Sr. Bethany shares her vocation story (it involves a nun dropping her off at another convent!) as well as some amazing stories of women that have been helped by the Sisters of Life during the most desperate and trying times of their lives.

Sr. Bethany relentlessly encourages women to uphold their dignity and seek exactly how God is calling them to love.

We discuss:

-What’s a vocation?

-How do I know if I have a religious vocation?

-Why it’s so important for women to recognize their dignity in God.

-The healing power of Christ in the most desperate of moments.

-The Litany of Trust (see below for prayer).
