Unthinkable but it happened

Would you believe it?

The Dominican Nuns of Mary, Dominican Sisters of Mary, Mother of the Eucharist, were interviewed in Oprah yesterday.

I have watched several episodes of Oprah wherein she does not put the Catholic Church in a very friendly light but I am surprised to learn that she took the time to feature the lives of these nuns.

FYI.  These nuns are one of the fastest growing orders in the US.  Their unique mark?

Wears traditional habits.

Hmmm... Nuns in pants dying?  Modernism isn't attracting the younger generation to enter the religious life.


  1. Well thank God that they don't look like women CEOs. The post Vatican II nuns started wearing business attire but with a cross. It's as if the cross was just a company logo.

  2. Ben, this congregation is one of the fastest growing in the US. The only growing congregations in the US are those that:

    a. traditional in life and liturgy
    b. wear distinctively traditional habits
