I joined this fantastic group of philanthropists and I chose this path to be a greater part of who I am. there are also, selfishly, many aspects that I believe the sisterhood could teach me to make me a better person as a whole. During conversation with a dear friend about a group of “21st century nuns” that do amazing volunteer work for the community. I searched the web about “The Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence”. I was so intrigued about how they educate and inspire people to be safe and proactive. I saw they were a part of the people. Unfortunately San Antonio wasn’t exactly known for their support and acceptance of the gay community. We then decided that “The Sisters” were exactly what our community needed. In May 2011 we manifested, with no real knowledge on what we were doing we went out on the town in Black Veils!!! OOPS!!! Well we were accepted with open arms in our very religious and Catholic community.
The reason I chose the path to become a sister is somewhat difficult to explain in little words. To be short it is really more of an emotion than it is explained in words. We as humans are constantly evolving and learning. I am no different. There is a great big world out there ready to teach and give. The Sisters are absolutely a part of that. As hypocritical as it may sound, I too, need to learn acceptance. I hope to learn a greater acceptance of those who don’t understand or are ignorant to the ways of my life and heart. I want to learn to educate and inspire people who may judge me without me being critical of them. I want to learn to be patient and understanding to those who disapprove of me and my loved ones. I want to pass on what I learn to those seeking the same information and acceptance. The sisterhood is offering me all of it in one big package. Being a sister I am inspired to be a better person through the work in my community. I feel that my goals and aspirations can become a reality, and that my path to be true and straight ( well, as straight as I can manage!!) can be accomplished.
