I, too, have a special love for German Shepherds. Are you familiar with the work of the Monks of New Skete NY who raise German Shepherds?

Sr. Marianne,

I wanted to konw if you would like to write a little article for my new group blog, Holy Vocations. All of the members are discerning vocations to either the priesthood, life as a sister, or the deaconate. I created it in hopes to help people discern and to increase vocations.

I was wondering if you would write about your personal vocation. Why you joined the order you did. What religious life has done for you. I think that if we hear stories like this then it would help others in their discernment. Would you mind writing a little article then?

Please let me know.

Sr. Marianne,

I just wanted to know if you have had any time to write that article on your vocation and the Daughters of St. Paul. I understand if you haven't though because I've been pretty busy too. If you could write one in the next two weeks or so, I would really apprecaite it.

Just please include some of your vocation story as well as what dailyi life in the Daughters of St. Paul is like. I think that if people share their stories then many vocations could be helped.

God Bless!
