Nashville Dominicans on NPR, Sisters of Mary on Oprah (again!)

A couple of weeks ago, NPR profiled the Dominican Sisters of St. Cecilia, better known as the “Nashville Dominicans.” This vibrant congregation is growing by leaps and bounds, and I’m always glad to see them getting positive attention from the media. Actually, the tone of the article is remarkably positive, which I suppose reflects the shared attitude of those lovely sisters. Take, for example, these wise words from Sister Beatrice Clark:

“The day-to-day is hard. … The day-to-day can be mundane in little stuff. But in the large choices, this [vocation] is the most freeing thing I could have chosen, because everything else would have been trying to find this — this defining relationship that would give value to everything.”

Read (or listen to) the whole story on NPR.org. For more information on the Nashville Dominicans, visit their Web site: http://nashvilledominican.org

And in case you didn’t hear, another flourishing order, the Dominican Sisters of Mary, Mother of the Eucharist, recently appeared on the Oprah Winfrey Show for the second time. You can watch clips of that episode here and segments of their first appearance (in February 2010) on YouTube. I’ve posted one segment below. (Parts of the video are a little jumbled, but I suppose that can’t be helped.)

God bless you, sisters, for your joyful, courageous witness!
