9781440492037: Memoirs Of An Ex-Nun: Sweet Surrender

This is about the author's personal journey of faith. As a young woman, fresh from college, she entered the doors of the cloistered life in the early 80's when many foreign religious orders were at the peak of their recruitment of young women to join them in her homeland. This story depicts her personal experience, the struggles, the triumphs as well as the failures of conforming to a way of life which she believed formed her character and strengthened her own faith in God. As the years passed by she thought this experience would just be forgotten. But she was mistaken- to confront her own fears that the past was not a catastrophic failure of her faith but was a tremendous challenge to hold and to claim that same faith, and to be continuously grateful for the privilege to be once a part of that "way of life". To work it out in a memoir for her own peace of mind and serenity of letting go is not an overnight work but an experience of a lifetime.

About the Author:

Born in 1961 in the Philippines, Josephine Latorilla was a recipient of a Cocofed Scholarship Program in the 1970's and graduated Accountancy from the Ateneo de Davao University. Together with other young girls of her age she joined the convent and went for further formation and studies in Rome, Italy in the 1980's. She was sent to help in the mission in her community in Australia. She completed a two year study at the National Pastoral Institute in Melbourne for Religious Education. In 1987, she went to Ilocos Norte, Philippines and served in the elementary and high schools as a religion teacher, was fully active and engaged in pastoral works. She left the order in 1993 and worked for a year as a junior bookkeeper in Monte de Piedad and Savings Bank in Manila. As destiny played its role and the training she had all those years wanting to embrace a life of prayer, work and penance, and total seclusion from the world brought her once again to the real world full of challenges and opportunities to live her faith. In 1996 she got married. Presently, she is living in Germany.
