Form a New Habit

Help me get to the convent!

Very rarely in our society do we see people  make real sacrifice. It seems as if  people only do things for personal gain. “What’s in it for me?” they say. Well, if you’re tired of this, keep reading.

In my time at Camp Gray, I have had the privilege of working alongside a very holy woman of God. She has inspired me to keep learning about my faith, to dig deeper, and to spread the truth to others in a way that is firm but compassionate and loving. Theresa Wilks has indeed affected my life in a profound way.

Theresa (or Mo-T, as she is known around Camp Gray) hopes to enter a convent this fall. Specifically, she feels a call to join the Sisters of St. Francis of the Martyr St. George. Mo-T is sacrificing all her earthly desires in order to serve our Lord every single day of her life in a very profound way. Her vows of poverty, chastity, and obedience scream anything but “what’s in it for me?”

However, Mo-T still has quite a bit of student loans from her undergraduate career. In order to start her formation in September, she must be debt free. To help her do that, she has put together a blog to raise money to pay off her loans. It’s called Giving is Habit Forming (clever, eh?). Here’s a link to her blog, which has more of Mo-T’s story and information on how to donate.

If you’re wondering what to do with some spare cash, perhaps your tax return, please consider helping a great woman of God fulfill her vocation to the religious sisterhood!
