[url="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XbrL18vrQsk&feature=related"]This[/url] is a video presentation of a new book on nuns, hope you'll enjoy the slide show and the song.

The book is entitled [i]What is a girl like you doing in a place like this? [/i]-sorry, it's in Spanish: ¿[i]Qué hace una chica como tú en un lugar como éste?[/i]


The first slide translates:

[color=#8b4513]------------- NUN ----------------[/color]
[color=#8b4513] A woman given to God and[/color]
[color=#8b4513] practicing a variety of sports[/color]

The rest is self explanatory. Enjoy!

That's Sr. John-Mark, a PCPA in the foundation in Phoenix, Our Lady of Solitude. I know the nuns out there (I helped them with items they needed when they left Hanceville) and I spoke to Sr. John-Mark last eyar regarding the annual Nun Run. She's a real sweetie. They monastery also has 2 Westies. :nun1: If I'm thinking correctly, she is probably about ready to make 1st profession.

That picture was taken at the Blessing of the Animals. Apparently you could bring any pet that was caged, leashed, in a covered aquarium, etc. Just so it couldn't get loose! My beagle, Lily, and I couldn't be there, so I asked the Sisters if she could be blessed in absentia. Nothing like trying to break the rules :pope2:

When did the Catholic church start blessing tribbles? (Or have they done so all along, and I just didn't realize it?)

I like the look of habits with the headpiece. There is something about that headpiece that makes the wearer seem not only holy but intelligent and credible. (Forgve me--I'm so ignorant I don't know what it is called.) That may not be so strange, as for example, in many cultures a high forehead is considered a sign of intelligence. I especially like the habit of the Sisters of Mary, Mother of the Church--I consider it one of the most beautiful habits EVER.

But, the headpiece looks uncomfortable--as if it would leave marks and would feel too tight. Is this the case?

I think if I were to join a communtity that wore a more traditional veil, I'd prefer one of light, soft materials. Often these are not as pretty or flattering--but then, whether a veil is flattering is not supposed to matter.
