Happiness of Religious Life

Saint Therese Couderc speaks often of "the happiness of the religious life," something that is perhaps not emphasized enough today.

This is not to deny the sacrifices involved, or the difficulties when unrelated women try to create a harmonious community life.

But Cybernun realizes that she would not be who she is today were it not for her vocation to religious life.  She is very grateful for this fact — and sincerely hopes her community is too.
