A connection with joy

In this Random Nun Clip, Dominical Sr. Mattie Sterner talks about distraction and direction on her journey to religious life. She had Dominican sisters educating her through grade and high school — and when she was a senior, she fell in love. But her boyfriend said she had better "try it out" — religious life — while he went to the Army. As it turns out, he was a gift.

Listen to the full episode of Ask Sister, taped in Columbus, Ohio, on Motherhouse Road Trip with the Dominican Sisters of Peace, here.
