Reminds me of the old Sisters of Holy Cross habits though theirs is more back

I think a Holy Cross priest told me that the sisters would make snow angels and the angels would have halos from their wimple(?). :hehe2: You should see the machine they had to use to flute them!

one of the sisters in our parish is a Holy Cross sister. She's also over 6 feet tall. I can't imagine how she got through a doorway with that towering headdress

Before I ever became a Catholic, I used to love Rosaries and Crucifixes, so I bought a set of Rosary beads the same size as those in the photo, but made of brown wood, and I hung them on a nail near my bed (didn't really know how to use them) and put a giant Crucifix over my bed. :) God works in funny ways. I attribute my conversion to the Rosary because my first experience of Catholics was praying the Rosary every night with my neighbour's family when I was a little girl. Our Lady is wonderful :heart:

...Why are young nuns so drop-dead gorgeous?... I hope I'm that gorgeous when I become a nun. :|

I sure hope that God isn't judging me by how I look in a habit, or I'm in trouble :P

I just hope I'm holy when I become a nun. :)

I [i][b]know[/b][/i]!!! They're always something so beautiful about a young woman consecrating herself to God. it must be their love of Christ shining through.

Must be!!! My mom says that it's probably because they're so happy and generally people who smile more just tend to look gorgeous! :) :heart:

Well, I don't really care how I look, but I do miss the feeling of wearing one! I think the Benedictine habit is just as beautiful as the Carmelite one, and black is just as nice as brown! :P

This is me in habit on my Clothing Day as a Carmelite. It will be interesting to do it again as a Benedictine.
