dc.description.abstractAdelaide Cini was hardly eighteen years old when she went to knock at the door of the cloister of St. Catherine in Valletta. The pious Sister Guzeppa Baldacchino who met her at the barred parlour window was impressed to see the slender weak daughter of the wealthy pasta factory owner of Hamrun in front of her asking to be accepted as a postulantnun. Later Guzeppa was convinced of Adelaide's religious background but as the young girl was then under a psychological strain following a marriage proposition to which her parents objected the good Sister could only consider her petition with sympathy. She advised her to return to her home and wait "until God shows you the real nature of your vocation".en_GB
