Dreams Do Come True
Teresa Leung, M.M
Dreams do come true!? My family has been Catholic for five generations, and every generation before me had contributed a few relatives to religious life.? Ever since I was a little girl growing up in Hong Kong, I dreamed of following them and serving God's people, yet I also wanted very much to have children of my own.? I became a paralegal in an international law firm, but the tug toward religious life would not go away.? So I looked for a religious community and chose Maryknoll because I was inspired by the Sister's free and creative spirit in relationship with God and the people.
In my 43 years as a Maryknoll Sister in Hong Kong, I have worked with refugees, done parish work, given retreats and counseled people.? I did pastoral and administrative work in a hospital and visited nursing home residents in my free time.? I also taught primary and secondary students at Maryknoll Convent School, where I enjoyed staying after class helping students, lending a sympathetic ear to parents and sharing experiences with colleagues.? I've learned, when we open our lives to others in faith, hope and love, dreams do come true.
