From the author, AngelaMarie:
Re-blogging an early post of mine, prompted by a wonderful thought passed on to me by a woman at the Oldenburg Franciscan Center this weekend. She came to the realization that Catholic Sisters are 'MythBusters' for our times - women whose very lives help us see through the myths of status and possessions and light the path to personal freedom. I work with the Sisters of St. Francis in Oldenburg, and my journey with them began with a retreat I made at the Franciscan Center in 2010. This was the first poem I wrote after years of not writing - while on that very retreat. To me, the image of Catholic Nuns as "MythBusters" is powerful, indeed. They light the path of authenticity through the sharing of their lives and walks with God. Do any of you have connections with Catholic Sisters? What has your experience been?
