Sister Madeline, O.S.B., raises awareness
St. Scholastica Monastery -- Fort Smith, Arkansas
EARTH DAY 2005
This year sisters picked some animal which is known to be cruelly treated, wrote a dialog explaining the who, why, & how of said cruelty, and presented their case while in costume. It was an informative and entertaining evening for all.
I'll bet it was.
The indispensable Catholic Church Conservation site brings this edifying item to our attention. And all over the world, poultry are resting easier this night.
Thank you, sisters.

I looked at their website. The silliness and shallowness of it all should make people see the difference between liberal Catholics such as these silly nuns (Call to Action types) and orthodox Catholics who use their minds to reason and think. I looked in vain for one thing of beauty on their site, but saw only emptiness and nothing to inspire anyone to love of God.

All that's missing from the picture is egg on the face.

I feel like some Kentucky Fried Chicken (with transfat please, so it tastes better). Of course, I hope the chickens are a lot younger than the Sister

GROW UP SISTERS! Role playing went out in the 70's and it was always considered juvenile. We has a hard time convincing the high school seniors on retreat to particpate. (yes, I know. mia culpa)

This is very embarrassing and scandalous expose.

When I saw the Henny Penny sign I thought for a fleeting instant that she might be satirizing the Al Gore Global Warming crowd, but no such luck, I guess.

There was a reason for habits and wimples. This animal rights protester represents the end of the line for a once vibrant order.
