Amanda shares about her attraction to the religious life, despite an initial reluctance to it. She invites youths to ask, ‘What do you want of me, God? And be sincere about it.’ Then, she was inquiring with the Carmelites, yet she wanted to stick to her own plan.
Finally, she called home and related her decision to her parents to enter into the Home of the Mother.
“I am going to enter here. Because I know that this is what the Lord wants of me.”
