OORAH! Where the Nuns Are: 2009

I've been pretty giddy the past few days. First there was the Over One Million Tea Party March on Washington, D.C. on Saturday, September 12 (and don't let the doltish "tens of thousands" claim from MSM fool you. There was a huge amount there.).

Now I read another story about which women's religious are thriving - and why:

“We’ve heard anecdotally that the youngest people coming to religious life are distinctive, and they really are,” said Sister Mary Bendyna, executive director of the Center for Applied Research in the Apostolate. “They’re more attracted to a traditional style of religious life, where there is community living, common prayer, having Mass together, praying the Liturgy of the Hours together. They are much more likely to say fidelity to the church is important to them. And they really are looking for communities where members wear habits.”

Yep. Things are definitely looking up.
