Nuns and Saints

Congratulations to the Catholic church for gaining a new saint. Very cool that she was an Aussie, and that she fought against child abuse.  

The other night I watched Sister Act. I love that movie, and I love this scene.  

Despite my antagonistic feelings towards Christianity, I do sometimes have an attraction to Catholicism.  

I like the nuns in The Sound of Music, and the priests in The Exorcist

I loved Mermaids, where a Jewish girl wished she was a nun.  

Okay. Mostly I like fictional Catholicism. BUT I know there's SOME great priests and nuns in real life as well.  Mary MacKillop was one of them.
