The subject and object of this whole CM Aspirants’ Retreat and acceptance experience is no other than Christ’s love.
It’s very overwhelming, I must say. It’s like drowning in the vast endless ocean of God’s love. During our Aspirant’s Retreat in CMCL in Dueñas, Iloilo last May 28-31, together with our Vocation Directress, Sr. Dedith Moralde, CM, as our Retreat Master, God has just made His call for me even more personal. There was a lot of time for silence and so it was an alone moment with God most of the time. God just affirmed me of being called to do His will by responding to His invitation “Come and see”. I was able to look back at the different episodes of my life in silence and just realized how He orchestrated every detail of it beautifully. The God who has been so faithful through the years is actually calling me to “level up” when it comes to following Him. How amazing can it get? What’s also humbling is the fact that I’m not really worthy of the call, but just as I am, He has called me still. Just as I am, He is the one who has made me worthy of the call.
