vocations – relationships

“Tell me and I will forget

Show me and I will remember

Involve me and I will understand”



At 24 young Dorothy Hart a successful actress in Hollywood, left her career to become a Catholic nun, Mother Prioress Dolores Hart  What a change this young lady made in her life…  Thomas Merton said “A man knows he has found his vocation when he stops thinking about how to live and begins to live.”  We are guided in life though an interplay of human responsibilities and divine directives.  Spiritual maturity  requires diligence, a clever mind and a trusting /loving heart.

A negative moment, will only be so, if we don’t apply positive action (s).


Wherever life leads you

With whoever you are sharing

with another or on your own

“Always be with God”

(PL Precept #11)

  1. Hi. I originally came over to say “thank you” for following my blog, but, naturally, when I saw all of this delightful stuff on here, I had to stop and look at pictures and read. I am enjoying your site immensely. But I stopped to comment here because I have just recently been thinking about Dorothy Hart and how I was a teenager enjoying her movies when she made that momentous decision to leave all of it and devote her life to service to God by becoming a nun. I was wondering how her life had worked out and if she is still alive today. I hadn’t gone online yet to try to find out, but I was so moved by the picture you included in this post. Thank you for sharing that. It has blessed me.

    • Ooooops, I see I said thanks for “following my blog”. What I was supposed to write was “Thank you for taking the time to read and like my post.” So sorry. But either way, I wanted to come over and visit to say I really do appreciate visits from others, and I’m very glad I came.
