Detail from Three Nuns in the Portal of a Church – Armand Gautier

Those of us who were taught by nuns often wonder what happened to them in their call to consecrated religious life. We also wonder who the women are today who are taking their place and responding to this radical call to action for the Kingdom of Heaven. National Public Radio’s John Donvan interviews three young career women who found their calling as nuns.

Spoiler alert: Listening to this program may cause you to have a renewed sense of faith. The positive energy, intelligence, of these young women is inspiring. The page also has some other stories on vocations to the priesthood and consecrated life.

Cause for concern:
If these women continue in religious life, they will be a great source of solace and strong motivation like the nuns who have preceded them over the centuries.
