Old Habits Die Hard


Recommended Posts

I have seen pictures online of some very unusual looking habits from times past and orders that are no longer around. I thought it would be fun to post pictures of the most interesting and unusual looking ones that we can find.

Yes, Anneline. apparently a bishop decided that all the unrelieved black might discourage vocations, so he urged them to adopt a veil with white trim and a white collar....

FP was paying a compliment, saying that he likes habits. :)

It was the Daughters of Charity's headgear that god them nicknamed "God's Geese."

I believe they were the Religious of the Sacred Heart. But I may be wrong :)

I can definitely see why several orders changed their habits from the ones they used to have. If I had to wear something like these bonnets, I'd feel like a horse with blinders on. :blink: I wonder if you get claustrophobic until you get used to it. LOL!

I don't know about all of you, but I used to (and well, still do) think that my sister principal was a superhero. running a nuts catholic hs one in the day, and saving the world at night.

They were called Coronets. They dropped them in 196...3?4?
It's a shame. I think they were beautiful. There's a very famous photograph taken at a Vincentian hospital in the area (one that I have a pretty close personal connection to) centered around a sister with a coronet on. I can't find the photo online, but there's a short video with it in it here:

That is an amesome picture. Thanks for sharing! I was at one point thinking of being a Daughter of Charity, but don't feel called there any longer after lots of prayer at contemplation. :( Wonderful women though!

You know the Sally Field character "The Flying Nun"?

This is what inspired that.
