Elisabeth is the youngest nun in Switzerland. At eighteen, she decided to go to the monastery. This spring she has made the eternal profession – the final decision to go her way with Jesus.
“A lot of people ask me how I can be so sure of wanting to live a life without a partner or children but I had never had the urge. I am convinced of the path I am on and trust where it,s taking me, but I am aware that, just like in any marriage, life can also get difficult in the cloister. Happiness is never a guarantee. In case I feel unsatisfied with my life there one day, I,ll have to see how to deal with it. Life is full of challenges, and you can accept them and work on yourself.”
The whole story and about 80 other portraits will appear in the book “People Like Us“.
