Introducing the members of Daughters of St. Paul

When I was in my elementary school, I could see my father being always full of life, and I thought it must be wonderful to make something you like most, your life work.

In high school, I had doubt about the way of study which only had the exam for purpose, and about the life itself of high school. I began to wonder what the real truth is, and where you can find it.
During my first year of high school, I read the book entitled “ What is faith ?” and I went to a Catholic church for the first time. I went to the church library and read the books by Le Faure, Cronin, Graham Green, and thinking that I can find the truth there, I started taking the religious classes.

On the Easter day before my graduation I got baptized. The joy was so big and so deep that I simply wished to share with others. Since then I prayed so that God will show me the way to realize this wish.

I met Sisters of the Daughters of St. Paul, visiting families, bringing them books.
Immediately I thought that this was my way of life, and 5 years after the baptism, I entered the Congregation of the Daughters of St. Paul.

Today, being in the convent of the Daughters of St. Paul, I am simply grateful to God for granting me the wish of my childhood.
