The Nuns From Nashville are Awesome!

We should all go and hug them, immediately, if not sooner. Have you seen their letter to folks about the HHS Mandate? Have a gander here,

Statement from Dominican Sisters of St. Cecilia Congregation February 6, 2012

Health Insurance Mandate: Religious Freedom and Conscience Rights in United States Seriously Threatened

The United States, from its very beginnings, has been an example of true human freedom and religious liberty for all. During its history, in fact, our nation has sheltered countless people who came here from countries where their basic freedoms were either in danger or being denied altogether. Sadly, Americans now face a similar threat. At this moment, which is strange and new to us, our own religious freedom and rights of conscience are in jeopardy. Sharing the very serious concerns expressed by Pope Benedict XVI and by our U.S. bishops in recent weeks, the Dominican Sisters of St. Cecilia will set aside nine days of prayer and fasting during the month of February, asking Our Lady to intercede for our country.

And it get’s better from there. Go read the rest (and pray the prayers too). Mark you calendars, as the Novena starts on February 11.

    I love the Nashville Dominicans! They educated me for 13 years, as well as every woman in my family. They truly do live for Christ and his Church. It’s awesome that you’re spreading the word about their response to the HHS mandate, and hopefully this means thousands will participate in the novena.

    I love the Dominican Nuns. They are so sweet and as someone else mentioned they have the most beautiful smiles. God Bless Them.
