Let’s play ‘find the nun’
Sorry I can’t show you the picture. It was like ‘Where’s Waldo?’ for the impatient or slow. Today I ran across a picture of new teachers at a local church-affiliated school, a group shot of a mix of attractive or matronly women, all feminine in different ways, with the occasional young man and... a craggy, short-silver-haired person in a Hawaiian shirt. The priest back from vacation? Nope. You guessed it. A ‘reformed’ woman religious. Last year I happened to be at a motherhouse, built in the ’60s when vocations were through the roof; now, just one middle-aged postulant.

That ‘renewal’ nonsense turned out to be self-limiting.
