I’m drafting a letter to write to Tyburn Convent. Eeek. It feels kind of weird writing it – it’ll be even worse when I actually put pen to paper (I’m drafting on my laptop). I’m writing to a complete stranger (and the Mother General no less!) and basically saying “I’m a good little Catholic girl, please let me join your convent.” It feels so bizarre writing to a community that one day could be my home in such a formal way but I suppose it must be done. I obviously want to be taken seriously as a discerner! I might have someone read my letter before I write it out to make sure it makes sense. But once I’ve written the letter and bought some stamps I’ll have made a first step!
