FOOTNOTE 13 The day I took the [religious] habit,  God let me understand how much I was to suffer. (Diary 22)††
† It was clothing day-April 30, 1926. Sister Clemens Buczek recalls that she was helping the candidates put on their habits. She wrote in her memoirs: "In May [sic], 1926, I was to dress Helen Kowalska. After she received the habit at the altar, I told her, `Helen, let us hurry to put on your habit.' Helen fainted. I hurried to get the smelling salts in order to revive her.... Later I used to tease her about her loathing to leave the world. I only found out after her death that the reason of her fainting was not sorrow for the world, but something else" (A. SF. Recol.).
