Many (okay, about four) of you have asked if I'll continue to blog once I enter the cloister. At one point, I did briefly entertain ideas about writing out posts, sending them with my letters, and having friends put them onto the blog for me. But the closer I get to entering the enclosure, and the more I meditate on what it means to be enclosed, the less comfortable I am with such a plan. Enclosure isn't just about what you do or where you reside - it's about who you are. Enclosed nuns are utterly God's in a profound and radical way. This is what I believe God wants for me, and I can't do it halfway. On this feast of St. Clare, I pray for her intercession; I ask for her to obtain for me the grace to be fully and wholly His - since this is the only way to be fully and wholly me. I ask for your prayers as well and promise mine in return. For a glimpse of what my life will be like after this Saturday, I invite you to visit my community's website: www.poor-clares.org. If you have prayer requests, please send them to me at the following address:

Sara Galey c/o Monastery of the Poor Clares
5500 Holly Fork Road
Barhamsville, VA 23011

I may not be able to respond in writing very often, but I will always respond in prayer.

Peace be with you!

I am sure you are right not to do any blog postings after you enter. The monastery looks a really happy place may you be very blessed by God and may he give you the gift of perseverance and joy.

I hope you find happiness in the monastery! You'll still be in my prayers :)

Oh yes, and I think you might like this quote. It's one of my favorites

"Our heart, our soul is too big to be happy with things which end. Only God can make us happy."

-M. Thecla Merlo (founded the Daughters of St Paul, the order my aunt is in)

What a joy to discover this blog for the very first time and realise you have given your life to Christ in this wonderful way.

God Bless
