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
