Because Nuns Play Soccer

I found this story passed along by Deacon Greg Kandra too inspiring to pass up.

Like St. John’s Seminary in Brighton, Mass., this convent in Nashville, Tenn., is seeing more vocations than at any time in recent years.

To those of you (I wasn’t a Catholic yet) who survived faithfully the abuse scandal early in this decade, these numbers, these vocations, have to be extraordinarily heartening. God bless these young women and men!

    I love that story, too, and made sure to show my girls the pictures (at the least). I talk frequently about the possibility that they might be called to religious life, and pictures like this help my Big Girl understand that if God has this life in mind for her, she won't have to give up what she sees as fun today.
