It seams interesting but i hope so that they will stay focused on their discerning and their vocation.It will be hard to focus their self with all this cameras and attention.

I wish them all well on their vocation.

Given how most if not all reality shows are far from reality and are in fact scripted to a large extent, I wonder how this can serve any useful purpose. It will probably lack authenticity, and without authenticity it's just ratings fodder.

Also, I think vocational discernment is not the sort of thing that should be "lived out loud."  God speaks in the silence of our hearts and it is best to reduce rather than to add distractions.  I hope each of them have a spiritual director who will be able to guide them.

I agree with the concerns voiced already, but I'm going to give it the benefit of the doubt for the moment. Hope it goes well and helps other discerners!

Hey you guys might catch a glimpse of my face if you watch the show :)  I was on a retreat with one of the women that's on this show.  Just a couple months ago I was visiting the Capuchin Sisters of Nazareth and the film crew was there so at most you might see me entering the chapel with the rest of the young women and that's about it lol.

Yeah but after I looked at the website I'm a little confused.  The young woman that I met that was supposed to be on the show was named Angela and none of those women are her lol.  Plus she told me it would be on TLC not lifetime, unless this is a different show but I'll be surprised if there are two reality shows about this...

The producers were in conversation with us for about 2 months. They originally asked to do a 5 minute thing but as we continued to be in correspondence it was clear that they had a storyboard for us to fit into and we said NO THANKS! They were not happy. We've said no many times to different production companies to be part of something like this. It doesn't look very hopeful to me.

Leonie's Longing was also contacted by Cracked magazine for an interview. After several back-and-forths, it was clear they weren't interested in showing the reality of women who have returned to the world. We said no.

 

I think that interest in nuns right now hints at a deep longing in people's hearts for a more meaningful life. There seems to be a public fascination with them that isn't just the "sexy naughty virgin nun" thing it once was. I think media producers are picking up on this, but they don't know how to make the kind of show that would help people to find meaning through the example of sisters, so instead they produce junk like this.

 

I watched the preview. It looks like drama, Drama, DRAMA!

 

Not going to watch it.
