Nuns in Burlington, Vermont.
Don't ever search for "Nuns" on google images if you can help it. Most of the pictures either profane religious sisters or worse. But I did find this wonderful website with pictures of Sisters from all over the world and most of the pictures are 75-50 years old. A nice website to show your daughters. Hint. Hint.
It was this article in the Boston Globe that sent me looking for images. Upshot- older nuns are retiring and there isn't enough money to take care of them. The moral is once again how awful the Catholic Church is and now they won't even take care of retired sisters. Sigh. I haven't seen any homeless nuns so somehow I think they are going to be okay.
I knew of only two religious sisters growing up in Vermont- no,not these two. They wore polyester pantsuits and lived in an apartment. It was all very progressive... and boring. But there are still a few good sisters around.
