  1. Angela, God bless you! You just stick to your guns and follow your heart. We need more people like you in the religious life – in the world, too! Lots of luck and happiness to you as you pursue this wonderful spiritual endeavor. Remember God has your back!

  2. I notice her super expressing eyes which makes her beautiful, and a lovely smile which makes her attractive. Beauty does not last long, and beauty of heart is so much more important whatever the life you choose to live. Have a good day beautiful ladies!

  3. Yes, she is indeed pretty-beautiful, but I believe we are each beautiful in the Lord’s eyes. Beauty comes from deep within.
