Seeking an holistic approach to life

About

I was born in Namyangju, Kyunggido in South Korea. My family was Buddhist.  When I was 13 years old, my grandmother passed away.  At that time I knew my grandmother’s baptismal name was Anna and that she was Catholic.While I attended the funeral Mass, something moved inside my heart.  After that I went to Catholic church by myself and was baptized when I was 14 years old.  

Also I met a friend in my middle school who was a Catholic and wanted to become a nun.  She suggested to me ‘Let’s become a nun together.’  So we developed our dream together.  But now she is married.  After that I met another friend in my church, and she became a Good Shepherd Sister before me.  When I was in my early thirties, she invited me to join our congregation.  My family also became Catholic after I professed my first vows.

In Good Shepherd

I am responsible for vocation promotion and connection with prospective candidates, and I am also a community leader. I’m trying to be aware how to live an holistic approach in daily life.

The Challenges

My biggest challenge is myself.  I am a free and idealistic person, but this formation ministry has challenged me to be more realistic.  Now I am a member of the Formation Team for Asia Pacific.

The Inspiration

I can’t see clearly what is God’s plan in my life but I trust that I will discover how much God has prepared good things for me.  I just can say ‘Here I am Lord’.
