“Oh, the happy choir director who is hired to start work on a brand new choir, or who walks into his first rehearsal a total stranger to the existing group—what a fortunate man he is! The new choir director who is a former member of the choir, or a member of the congregation, or the nephew of the alto soloist, or a former altar boy, or otherwise well acquainted with the choir, is in for a few headaches.”
— Paul Hume (1956)

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?
