Abigail in Lima


Tell us your name, age and your state-in-life! 

Abigail, 29, currently looking for my vocation (discerning)

Where are you located? 

Are you a cradle Catholic, convert or revert?
I was raised as catholic but i started my Journey with Jesus at the age of 21 after Ignatian Spiritual Retreat

If you’re a convert, when did you come into the Church and what did you convert from? 

Back then, at 21 i had i crisis because i didnt know what i wanted in life and i was always sad and very unhappy. A theology teacher recommended me the Ignatian retreat and it was my first of all but I realized how much God was waiting for me to come to Him. And since then we never drew apart from each other. I started praying the rosary and going to mass every day, or at least trying to sin less.

What’s been the biggest game changer in your Catholic faith?

It was definetly when i encountered Focus missionary on my Campus in Vienna. I started attending a Bible study group and became a disciple so i could lead one in German! I never thought the German school payed off in the end. 

Due to the Bible study, i understood how important is to love one another. Not Just for the Sake they might appear in the Bible study but they might grow in their faith and realize that God is with them every day.

Name a saint you identify with and share why.

Therese of Lieuseux, because i rely very much on Gods Mercy. When she was still so Young, she Had a lot of fears and was top vulnerable. I Battle a Lot with that. 
But learning to Love, excersising in Love to one another makes it easier. And of course the presence of the living Good is essential too!

When have you felt most valued as a woman in the Church? 
I think when a nun held a talk about feminine Genius. We women have such big Hearts that have the cappacity to make big sacrifices. 

What’s your favorite way to pray?
Holy Hour before the Holy Sacrament

Favorite liturgical holiday?

What do you do for fun?
Dance, Pray and Love

Three words that describe you — go! 
Petit outgoing loving
