I understand why Ms. Roberts, and a lot of my fellow Catholics, see our women religious as simply really, really great social workers who don't have sex. What breaks my heart clean in half is to hear it expressed by my beloved sisters THEMSELVES. How lonely they must be.

Nary a word about being a bride of Christ. Ever.

I remember a nun who, whenever she spoke of Jesus, her eyes would light up and she'd say, "Don't you just LOVE him?" -- just like she was a teenager. She did terrific stuff socially too, but I remember how much she loved him. She'd be tickled and please to hear that.

More often, now, I see angry, male-hating "community of one" sisters who haven't a shred of humility. They don't seem like they are in love, to me.

If this no name housewife from Podunk, USA cannot find very many nuns in love... I'm thinking the Holy Father is distressed too.
