This chapter focuses on literary works that religious women wrote to celebrate another sister's profession, there are a few examples of poems in which a nun-writer contemplates her own decision to enter a convent. Sor Violante do Cus sonnet on her entrance into the Convent of the Rose includes the poets vow to keep her eyes transfixed on Gods light and not to look back to the world outside the convents walls. While there is no explicit indication that a particular poem by Sor Juana was written for her entrance into monastic life, it is quite possible that she composed sonnet 149 for her own profession. Sor Juana and other early modern women figuratively adopted the role of wedding preacher.
