A DIARY OF A NOVICE

By Emanuela Ghini

«This nun's short diary was given to me to read…». Thus, Emanuela Ghini introduces this work which can reflect, in a broad sense, the story of every person called to monastic life. A further testimony to the mystery of those who dedicate themselves to God in prayer, in silence, in contemplation, in a truly lateral gaze towards our world, always present in the life of every nun and every monk: life stretched out in the love that it is God, towards brothers and sisters in humanity. The diary of the anonymous novice is preceded by another diary writing, by the same person who was still an adolescent. It is, therefore, the same young woman, in two distinct moments of her life, who almost places herself in the mirror and reveals the intertwining of two faces of conscience, those which, ultimately, inhabit all of us: one, naive and surprised by the mystery indefinite of life and one aimed at the mystery of God. The reader who agrees to become a companion of this diary will gradually realize that he has entered a small jewel of mystical literature, still possible even in our century.
