“I grew up listening to Lessons & Carols from Cambridge and that was Advent-Christmas for me. Then I moved to Rome and discovered Rorate Masses, the Novena of the Immaculate Conception with the Tota Pulchra, the Christmas Novena, the O Antiphons, the Aspiciens, the Rorate Coeli, the Alma Redemptoris Mater: that's Advent for me now. I am glad to see seminarians all over the United States doing Lessons & Carols, but are they learning our ancient Roman traditions alongside a 20th-century Anglican one?”
— Rev. Christopher Smith

Video • Nuns At Work (1965)
published 18 March 2015 by Jeff Ostrowski

Y FAVORITE LINE from this beautiful film about Catholic nuns is: “The Catholic nun works with zest—and a sense of fun—along with her devotion.”


When I see a film like this, I remember a line from a sermon by St. John Vianney. He said something to the effect of: “O Christian, do you not realize the life to which you’re called is beautiful? Even the pagan has to admit this reality about your calling.”

What has happened to our nuns? Where have they gone?
