Home of Rhett & Link fans - the Mythical Beasts!
Hello, fellow beasts!!!
I am so excited to announce that I've been accepted to join a convent this August! I have been thinking about joining one for quite some time, and now I am so happy that it's finally happening! I'm going to be a nun!!
So what does that mean?
I am a catholic, and catholics have groups of men and women who choose to live in communities particularly dedicated to prayer and service. Those who join the communities vow to live their lives according to what are called the "evangelical counsels": poverty, chastity, and obedience. In other words, the members have nothing of their own, they live celibate lives in order to have an undivided love for Christ, and they submit themselves completely to their superiors. In these ways, they seek to live as closely to how Jesus Christ lived as much as possible.
The order I am joining is called the Dominican Sisters of St. Cecilia. "Dominican" refers to St. Dominic, who established the particular way of life the nuns follow. Dominican orders mainly focus their work on preaching and teaching, so you'll see a lot of Dominican nuns in schools.
As per the practice of poverty, when I join in August, no more internet and no more Rhett and Link or GMM. It's definitely bitter-sweet because the Kommunity and being a daily watcher has been so much fun. Of course I'll be sticking around for several more months, but I'm going to gradually try and step back from these things. I'll still keep up with the R&L history posts, but I'll be asking for a replacement maybe in a couple of months so someone can still help Alli out. I'm planning to send Rhett and Link and the crew some mail to say thanks and goodbye.
If you're still curious, feel free to send me a message! Or if you'd rather peruse the website for the Dominican Sisters of St. Cecilia, be my guest! Here are a couple of key pages:
Or a couple of videos about their life!
