A couple years ago, Fr. Michael Sweeney and I had a conversation about the Carmelite practice of taking a religious name that highlighted an aspect of the Gospel that was most precious to you or reflected a devotion or spiritual path that you felt called to.

hence, Sr. Therese of the Holy Face of the Child Jesus

If you took a name for yourself, what would it be?, I asked him. "Michael of the Incarnation" was his reply.

I thought for a moment and then said "I'd be Sherry of the Redemption"

So gentle commenters and lurkers, if you have to answer that question, what name would you choose?
