“Book of the moment”

Wednesday, June 3rd, 2009

A long and admiring story in TheAlternativePress.com, based in North Jersey, discusses the Dominican nuns at the Monastery of Our Lady of the Rosary in Summit, NJ.

According to the story: “During the main meal, at noon, the nuns may sit in silence and eat or one sister reads from a book that they may be jointly reading as a group at the time. Currently, the book of the moment is “My Cousin the Saint” but they do have a full library available to them equipped with the classics as well as classical music.”

I came across this web called Ask Sister Mary Martha. The tagline is: “Life is tough. Nuns are tougher. If you need helpful advice, just ask Sister Mary Martha. She’ll help you. Just don’t expect any sympathy.”

Here she blogs about Father Damien, a saint in waiting.
