Nun remembers struggle of decision
ELGIN, 111 (AP) - What Is It like for a young woman to make the difficult decision to become a nun? Sister Linette Howard, teacher at St. Thomas More School, was willing to talk about this personal decision.
Growing up in San Diego, Calif., and going to public schools, she rarely saw nuns. But there was a constant religious presence in her home, which she attributes to her mother.
“There was something driving me to help other people," she said She considered missionary work and the Peace Corps before she thought of becoming a nun But she told no one And for a time, other interests took over.
“You know how when you’re grow IHS up< you think about getting married and having a family, and you date. I kind of pushed it to the back of my mind.”
It came forward again when she was working in an office in San Diego-
“Being out of school and working and trying to get a grasp on where I was going — that’s when it came up
more — and being not satisfied with what I was doing and wanting to know more about doctrine and about the church."
One evening after attending Mass, she went to the priest and asked him where the convent was.
“All I can say is, it was an inspiration of the Holy Spirit because it had been in my mind, but I never had had enough courage to pursue it."
She went to the convent that evening It was arranged for her to help in the school where the nuns taught so she could familiarize herself with their life and work.
The sisters at the school were members of the Springfield Dominicans, a teaching and healthcare community whose motherhouse (headquarters) is in Springfield.
Arrangements were made for Sister Linette to enter the order as a postulant, a probationary candidate for sisterhood, in August. Then came a time of doubt.
The nuns went away on summer assignment. Her friends were not supportive Some were already mar
ried or engaged. They thought she was crazy. She vacillated. When August arrived, she told the nuns in Springfield she was not coming.
They invited her to Springfield for a “share-in," a time to live at the motherhouse and see what life in the order was like. “When I came for the share-in, the minute I walked through the motherhouse doors, I knew there was peace there," she saki. 'There was Just an overwhelming feeling inside me that this was ritfkt."
She reversed her decision again and entered her petulancy, but this was not the end of uncertainty. She found difficulties adjusting to the Midwest and to religious learning.
“There were times when I felt like God was way off. And I was almost to the point where I was questioning, am I giving up God to know my religion?"
Her postulancy lasted nine months, and her novitiate lasted two years. After that, Sister Linette took temporary vows for five years. Last August, she took her final vows.

Era of harmony opens between two religions
CHARLESTON, SC. (AP) — A Roman Catholic bishop and a Jewish leader say a new era of harmony and understanding has opened between Catholics and Jews.
Terming Catholics spiritual “Jews or Hebrews," Charleston’s Bishop Ernest L. Unterkoefler told a symposium at Synagogue Emanu-El that while it was “once common for Catholics to consider the Jewish people responsible for Jesus’ death, it is sinful to teach that today ."
He and Rabbi Marc H. Tanen-
baum, the American Jewish Committee’s international relations director, voiced confidence of a common Jewish-Catholic front against racism, persecution and other social injustice.
Tanenbaum said, “We have reached a moment today when not a single Catholic text in a single Catholic school has a single hostile or negative reference to Jews. ”
