Ok - I thought this was fascinating and fun. Here a Rockette dancer from the show Nunsense is being turned into a nun!

Ancilla Domini

I took this picture when I was in Assisi recently. It's one of my favorites. :)

 

Apparently, the Franciscans couldn't resist window-shopping at the leather-sandals store. :topsy:

These are SÅ’URS AUXILIATRICES DE KOLWEZI in Democratic Republic of the Congo. They definitely have the most interesting habit I've ever seen! I can't seem to find very much info on them but it appears that other Democratic Republic of the Congo orders of women religious have a similar kind of habit -- small kerchief over the head with a lively patterned shirt and skirt.

It makes one wonder if the colors &/or patterns signify anything...but I must admit, these sisters wear them beautifully :)
