The Domincan Sisters Light Up Oprah’s Show

Brenda Steele watched the Dominican Sisters of Mary, Mother of the Eucharist on The Oprah Show today. 

Her comments published at Catholic Advocate, I am sure, echo what all of us who were able to watch the show were thinking. 

Here Brenda hits the nail right on the head:

 It would have been impossible for both the studio audience and the TV not to notice the happiness that exuded from the faces of the Sisters of Mary postulates, novitiates, and consecrated nuns as they lived their day.

 Sister Frances Mary, 22, when asked by Oprah, “How did you know you wanted to become a nun?” responded by saying, “It wasn’t something audible; it was just something that came from here”(as she clutched her hands to her heart, beaming all the while.)

Another touching response came from Sister Mary Judith when Oprah  asked about nuns being married to Christ — “It’s hard to have Christ as a spouse, when something goes wrong in the relationship, I know it’s me!”
