“Perhaps no one has written about the life of a Filipina religious in the 20th and 21st centuries. This book provides insights into the life of one such Filipina, a normal party-going woman who worked in the corporate world and was wooed by suitors before she decided to join the religious life. Such a publication could break the stereotype of Filipina nuns as colorless and nondescript women in floor-length habits whose lives remain largely hidden and humdrum. In the process, it could attract 21st century Filipinas to the religious life.”
