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.
