We rejoice as another candidate has joined the Teresian fold. Miss Roschelle R. Martis was born in Kuwait and she grew up in Bombay. She is a graduate in Physics. Later she went on to pursue her Masters in Space Science and her Doctorate in Aerodynamics.

In the midst of her studies, she experienced a longing to deepen her faith and started reading spiritual books and articles and through this got introduced to the Liturgy of the Hours and started praying it. But the desire for a deeper experience of God kept growing. Once on her visit to the Cloistered Carmel in Pune , to buy host for her parish, she expressed her desire to make a retreat to discern her vocation. She came inside as a candidate to come and see life in Carmel and heard God calling her to “go and sell everything” and come follow Him. After 3 months she came back and joined as a postulant.

She made her vestition on the eve of the Solemnity of St John of the Cross (13th of December, 2015) and has taken the religious name of: Sr Benedicta of the Holy Face.

While we wish her joy and contentment in Carmel, let us accompany her with our prayers as she begins her novitiate.
