We were once a novice

In every new stage of our life, we are once a novice. In a moment of challenge, it might be a good idea to refer back to our first day as a novice.

 This is how I reflected upon my day of being a Novice and may I humbly share it to you as another way of saying "thank you" for all your prayers and support during my postulancy. Please say a little prayer for me once in a while. God bless you.


grant me a heart of a novice
which longs always to live for You

Grant me the spirit of a novice
which zealously always seek to serve You

Grant me the piety of a novice
which fervently prays and fear to sin

Grant me the modesty of a novice
which is always ashamed of abundance

Grant me the humility of a novice
which always seeks to be the first to say 'thank you' and 'sorry'

Grant me the hope of a novice
which can't wait to say the words on the day of her profession

renew my life today
as if this is my first day as a novice
