Thoughts on vows, vocations, and visibility

On MS-NBC's website yesterday in "The Week in Pictures," there was a photo gallery which includes a picture of two nuns playing with the children of a parochial school during some unseasonably warm weather in White Bear Lake, Minnesota.

I looked 'em up - here they are.

If you follow that link, you will notice something quite unusual about the sisters in the photo on the website.

1. Their habits are beautiful.

2. The order would appear to be attracting vocations.

The sisters are attached to St. Ann's Church, which is run by the FSSP. They are traditional in their religious life and worship.

And MS-NBC included a picture of these unprogressive gals on its website photos for the week.

Just interesting, that's all.
