Here is an excerpt (and conversation that I believe all of the builders have had in one form or another–more on this in another post in the coming weeks):
KATHRYN JEAN LOPEZ: You are a Harvard graduate. Aren’t you surrendering all the possibilities that entails by entering a convent?
MARY ANNE MARKS: Yes, if one doesn’t see becoming a well-educated, intellectually alive nun as one of the possibilities.
She goes on to defend the Catholic Church’s respect for and support of the dignity of woman. Best wishes to Mary Anne! Can we give her an honorary builder degree?
