Recently, Franciscan Sister of Christian Charity Community Director Sister Natalie Binversie responded to several questions from Herald Times Reporter Media feature editor Benjamin Wideman involving choices in entertainment, what it means to be a religious woman at this time in history, to questions on faith and family and advice on anyone feeling a call to serve God.

Any words of advice to people who may be feeling a calling to serve their religious faith? It is very important to pray for the guidance of the Holy Spirit in making a life decision. There are many options from which to choose, making a decision more difficult. Do not be afraid to take a risk and reach beyond one’s comfort zone. There will always be questions and unknowns to deal with. This is where faith and trust in God comes in. For various reasons, sometimes the parents do not want their child to follow a call from God. It is important to pray for parents to be open to the call God is giving their son or daughter.
