Margaret Anna Fridays ... on the vows

Most Fridays, I’m going to share a quote from the founder of my groovy sisters, Margaret Anna Cusack, known in religion as Mother Francis Clare. In the weeks leading up to my profession of final vows on November 11th, I will be highlighting some of her insights on the vows.  Here's today's installment:

The ordinary obedience of a child in this world is something very different from the obedience of the vowed religious ... Mere obedience to the letter is the obedience of a slave, it is the obedience of a servant to a tyrant master.  It would be a poor obedience to offer to a God who has been obedient unto death.
