Former U.S. Speedskater now a nun

Twelve years ago at the Winter Olympics in Nagano, a 17-year-old speedskating prodigy named Kirstin Holum was tapped for future greatness.

When Holum placed sixth in the 3,000 meters – one of the most grueling disciplines in the women’s program, a lung-scraping four-minute bust of lactic acid torture – speedskating insiders predicted a golden future and speculated she may not even reach her peak for another decade.

There is no television and no internet at St. Joseph’s Convent in Leeds, England, meaning Holum won’t get to watch the Winter Olympics where she was supposed to become a star.

The peaceful surrounds of the convent is where Holum, now known as Sister Catherine, devotes her life to religious service as a Franciscan nun. That calling had begun on a trip to Our Lady of Fatima, a holy site in Portugal famed for a series of religious visions that appeared nearly a century ago. It was outside the Fatima basilica where Holum decided that a path of religious dedication, not frozen skating lanes, would be her destiny.

The sum of the fourth, fifth and sixth letters of the first name rules ages twenty-seven to fifty-four.

Kirstin

19 (S (19th letter in the alphabet)) + 20 (T (20th letter in the alphabet)) + 9 (I (9th letter in the alphabet)) = 48

So her ages twenty-seven to fifty-four are ruled by the number 48.

48 = Purpose.  Meaning.  Mission.  Direction.  Destination.  Guidance.  Goals.  Aims.  Worthwhile.  Tour.  Traveller.  Tourist.  Visitor.  Road trip.  On the road.  Trucks.  Convoy.  Caravan.  Rock ‘n roll.  Rock concert.  Tribute.  Navigate.  Steer.  Wandering.  Sky.  Heaven.  Rembering God.  Worship.  Renunciation.  Monastic.
