The representative Protestant collection, entitled “Hymns, Ancient and Modern”—in substance a compromise between the various sections of conflicting religious thought in the Establishment—is a typical instance. That collection is indebted to Catholic writers for a large fractional part of its contents. If the hymns be estimated which are taken from Catholic sources, directly or imitatively, the greater and more valuable part of its contents owes its origin to the Church.
— Orby Shipley (1884)

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?
