From Harvard To Her Religious Calling

Mary Anne Marks graduated from Harvard University at the top of her class. You may have heard of her, she is the one that gave the salutatory address all in Latin.

She received a standing ovation.

In addition to graduating with a Classics and English double major with honors, she will be entering the Dominican Sisters of Mary, Mother of the Eucharistin Ann Arbor, Michigan.

You may remember these nuns from their appearance on the Oprah Show earlier this year in February and how they dazzled the audience as well as Oprah Winfrey herself with their simple devotion and love of Jesus in the Eucharist.

The following video is Mary Anne Marks being interviewed by Net New York‘s Outstanding Anchor Francesca Maximé on the Currents program.

No, it’s more than that. It’s a justification, an excuse, for not helping each other and those outside the Church fall in love with Jesus Christ. How easy it is to talk about everything, but about Jesus hardly at all.

We have a brillant guy from our parish that was ordained a priest 2 years ago. He went to Harvard & did all his studies in Rome. He had every plan most Harvard grads have. Brilliant career, money, marriage, kids... well God had different plans in mind.

I bet we can expect some amazing works from her as a Dominican sister, maybe even in Latin..

I have a few aquaintances who went to Yale and then embraced a religious vocation: a couple priests (diocesan and Jesuit) and a Sister of Life as well as a few others discerning the same.

One time I was at a Catholic conference and I met a girl from Harvard who is studying astrophysics, I think, but she was discerning a religious vocation as well.

To add some balance, let's all remember that 50% of female religious vocations are to what you would call the more "liberal" orders that don't wear habits.

The idea that if the 95% of orders who currently don't wear habits became conservative that there would be many, many more vocations is not proven by statistics. With less choice, and more regimentation, there would probably be half the vocations there are today.

I'm noticing a theme here. I knew a girl who got straight A's in high school, read her Bible and Catechism everyday, was joining the peace corps, and was discerning religious life. God's taking all the good ones!!

all the people I know who are considering religious life are considering orders with habits

Wow what a bright girl. She will definitely be an asset to the church.

It is amazing that she survived the Peoples Republic of Cambridge intact.
