A Ministry of Prayer, Study, and Writing

The caption to this story begins with this:

Robin McCarthy, who uses a wheelchair, is to be consecrated into the Sisters for a Christian Community in the spring. Five other religious communities had rejected her.

Robin McCarthy wanted to be a nun from the time she was 7 years old. Robin says:

"I am way more connected to the Catholic side of myself than I am the disability," says McCarthy. "It's not the overriding concern of my life. I was born with it, which sounds awful, but frankly, because I've never known any other way of life, you sort of can't miss what you never possessed."

Congratulations to Robin.
