The capes on the postulants outfits are truly awesome! But the capes ( I think they're called something else..) the sisters wear are truly awe-inspiring. :love:

I don't think its superficial at all! I think one of the things that first drew me to the community was their beautiful "outfits". When people ask me why I want to be a nun I'm always [b]so[/b] [i]tempted[/i] to tell them its because I'll get to wear a cape![img]http://www.phatmass.com/phorum/public/style_emoticons/default/caption_yes.gif[/img] I love capes too![img]http://www.phatmass.com/phorum/public/style_emoticons/default/love.gif[/img]

That's the mantle... worn in honor of Our Blessed Mother :) It's generally worn only at mass and other formal occasions in most orders.

I think Lockport is sooo beautiful... I'm glad they're doing well!

How do I put this? Im sure someone will correct me if Im wrong but here goes. If heaven is a mystical spousal union with God and the lives of nuns on earth reflect that heavenly reality then as mystical brides their habit is their weddng dress but unlike a bride who wears her dress only once nuns wear theirs everyday. Those of us discerning religious life then may talk about a habit in what may sound to others a very superficial way but it actually isnt as we are like any engaged woman looking at dresses and which one she might wear for her beloved. Unlike the average brde though we continually seek our beloved`s opinion and will about where He would like us to go and what He would like us to wear. Then in a huge break with most brides of our day we even ask the opinion of our possible future mother in law, and may even imitate her in what she wears!:shock::D

Well, I'm happy to report that my pastor found a benefactor to help with the largest portion of my student loans. Only a small amount would be remaining, which I should be able to take care of myself. Almost there! Still have a few more things to be worked out, so please keep up your prayers.
God bless you!

Also: the sisters' chaplain's blog has been updated:[url="http://scrantonsouth.blogspot.com/"]Scranton South Blog[/url]. Edited by Saint Therese
