Greetings in that Divine and Most Precious Name of Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ!



They just finished their month long ride into Washington, D.C.

Quote
Every hour of each day, Catholic Sisters stand in solidarity with all who live in poverty, and we confront injustice and systems that cause suffering.

We cannot stand by silently when the U.S. Congress considers further enriching the wealthiest Americans at the expense of struggling, impoverished families.

As part of our campaign for budget fairness we are taking a bus trip. Our bus will travel to places in many states where Sisters actively serve people in need. For they are our best witnesses to the suffering our federal government must not ignore.

We ask all who visit this website to join us in prayer and to support our work to defeat government actions that would add to the suffering of already struggling families.

This bus trip has been organized and is sponsored by NETWORK, A National Catholic Social Justice Lobby, and the NETWORK Education Program.

I really dig these Sisters Smiley

stay blessed,
habte selassie

The "nuns in the bus" are not nuns at all as nuns are cloistered monastics.

It is a shame that those Roman Catholic sisters are giving good nuns everywhere a bad name by their disobedience.

there is nothing wrong with nuns who are allowed to work outside a convent by their spiritual leader going and taking good news to the poor.
i met a catholic nun recently who is a kind and Godly person.
dzheremi's favourite nun (tamav 'mother' irini) was a wonderful person who spent loads of time in prayer and education of the nuns (she was an abbess) and who also spent loads of time praying with all sorts of visitors to the convent. she was granted the power to perform various miracles and was very humble, accepting her multiple illnesses as tools for spiritual growth. i have an icon of her at home  Smiley
but i expect there are catholic nuns like this too.

Thanks to Vatican II, the "nuns" in the OP aren't nuns.  These sisters are nuns.

My first thought on reading the title of this thread was the nun from the priceline.com commercials.
