We are Poor Clare sisters. We were founded by St Clare of
Assisi over 800 years ago. We are a cloistered community, living a Gospel life,
that is, putting prayer into our world.
Mother Damian is our Abbess, here at Ty Mam Duw. We are a
community of 13 sisters.
When I entered I found life very different to the life I
lived in the world. At first it was not easy, postulants has many ups and downs. My first
down was when I was sent to the laundry to help. The sisters started to pray
the rosary and they asked me for a prayer intention and to start the next
decade of the rosary. I was not use to praying with people and felt very out of
place so I ran away, back to the noviciate, where I felt safe.
Praying with other
people was something I had to learn. Each of us when called has to learn
something new. Even though I have had many experiences like this one, I have never
thought of exchanging this life for another. My life here at Ty Mam Duw is one
of daily service in very ordinary things.
My motto for life is:
Look up to heaven dear
one, which calls us forward, for all things will be well in Jesus.
May you find a life that you would not exchange for all the gold
in the world.
