"I was really interested ... it lit a little fire in my heart."
Sarah Hennessey, Franciscan Sister of Perpetual Adoration
"What if my family isn't Catholic? Meet Sister Sarah" is the latest Show me a sign video in our discernment series to premiere. Sister Sarah, like every other woman who has taken vows, has more than one such personal story of discerning religious life. Global Sisters Report recently shared another about Sister Sarah in the article "Sister to sister: Religious reflect on who inspired them to follow God's call." In it, she recalls when her 21-year-old self, during a cultural immersion program, was gifted with a question by Franciscan Sisters of Perpetual Adoration Cecilia Corcoran: "Did you ever think God might have a call on your life?" Shares Sister Cecilia, "It is a beautiful relationship with which Sarah and I have been blessed."
