Nuns on Oprah

If you haven't seen it, now's your chance. :)

I thought it was good-- didn't go very deep, but you can't really do that in that format anyway. I'm glad Oprah chose to feature that for one of her last episodes (apparently she's retiring from the show at the end of the season.)

This was an interesting program. It reminds me of The Monastery that BBC did a couple of years ago.

I haven't heard of that BBC program! I've been meaning to see a really long quiet documentary called "Into Great Silence" about some Carthusian monks who rarely speak.

Sorry but I thought it was a scandal that the good Sisters elevated the show of the world's most evil woman.

It was, no doubt, a case of naivete by the Sisters - but sometimes we should be wise in the ways of the world to avoid scandal.

May I quote Fr. Ignatius?

"Innocence and Holiness of Life are of themselves more powerful and far preferable to all other gifts.

But without prudence and the art of dealing with the world, they remain incomplete and incapable
of guiding others."
St. Ignatius of Loyola
