Community of Our Lady of Walsingham, the first community I discerned with and one I would have loved to have joined, but God had other plans :saint:

I love their habits - they carefully chose something practical, hardwearing (demin) and easily washable! By having them sleeveless they wear tops under which reduces wear and the scapular is removed for housework, driving etc so it always looks neat. And I LOVE the hoods!

I wish they were recognized by the Church. The Sisters of Carmel are, unfortunately, a renegade order. Their habits and ceremonies are beautiful, though!

It might sound odd but even before I knew their status these pictures made me feel very uncomfortable. I can't explain it, I just feel twitchy :blink: I sort of wonder if its the elaborate setting of their monastery, but I don't get the feeling with some of the other communities that have ornate and elaborate settings/ceremonies, its just really strange.

It is a true shame. :( I didn't realize they weren't recognized... or I knew someone out that way wasn't, but couldn't remember which it was.... Edited by MargaretTeresa

Weird! :crazy:

Maybe it's the Holy Spirit in you trying to warn you that they are not approved. :blink:

I love nuns.

I love them in habits.

I love them in pant suits.

I love that 90% are octogenarians.

I love sisters.

That's TERRIBLE (cue Randall)

Nun's should be praying...Oh my Goodness....they should have a custodial arts professional for that...
