The Catholic Church Can't Buy PR Like That

Yesterday, the Oprah Winfrey show featured a report by Lisa Ling on REAL nuns living in a convent outside of Detroit.

The average age of the sisters was 26.

They looked happy to be there.

They were not old, boring and dying. They were quite alive.

I'm thrilled that Catholic women will see this and may consider a vocation as a nun. The Church couldn't have done a better job.

What I like about their stories is how they highlight that their worldly success didn't give them any satisfaction. These women are really liberated.
