...who were ordained or took first vows ('tis that season!). I know I'm getting old, since I've been around long enough to follow the journey of two young bloggers: now Fr. Mike, at The Night Is Passing! was ordained to the priesthood in late June. Sr. Brittany Harrison, who blogged at Into the Deep for a number of years (but has since ended the blog and transferred to FB), made her first vows as a Salesian sister last week.
It really is a privilege--even on blogs, or especially on blogs?--to see people struggle, laugh, and dance through this life. Vocation stories are especially touching, because people are honest about what life is: a call from God to love Him, and with him, love others. Both Fr. Mike and Sr. Brittany have great senses of humor and a love for God, and I wish them all the best.
