Time has a really good photo essay here, on a monastery in Summit, New Jersey. It's played as a movie with bits of interviews with two of the sisters. I don't know how long it'll be up. I am surprised and delighted to find a secular news source conveying religious life so well, in the words of the nuns themselves. The last picture's cool-- the photographer found a cross in an unexpected place. :)
As long as I'm being random, here's Archbishop Fulton Sheen: "If you don't behave as you believe, you will end by believing as you behave."
Update: Slightly longer and better version of the photo essay on the photographer's site here.
