Divine Mercy Chaplet
#11
My main question is: why is frowned upon for someone to enter religious life despite family's preferences?  If she were running away to become an actress in Hollyweird, or some other unsavory path that would lead to degradation and exploitation, I'd understand.  In this instance, I don't understand how joining a convent against her parents' wishes was a "bad thing"...aside from MM's point that at that time, 21 was considered the age of majority. 

As mentioned in another thread, my father was (and still is) against me becoming Catholic.  Our parents do generally want what's best for us, and have a certain authority always, but after a point, their preferences can interfere with our calling.  For that reason, you could say I'm highly sympathetic to Faustina's situation.
