I am thrilled to discover that it is Catholic Sister’s Week from March 8 to the 15th because I have hundreds of startling images of Catholic Nuns on Pinterest that I have waited to post on my blog. I already snuck a few of my favorites in other articles but today I present a sweeping panorama of the consecrated life of women religious. So, as I link up to Small Success Thursday on CatholicMom. I celebrate my success at finding incredible images of sisters, many which tell a poignant story in the photo, a frozen moment in time.
Nuns inspire me,
light a flame in my heart,
a flame of hope in surrender,
raising my eyes to the heavenly kingdom
that lies both within my heart and all around me.
That lies both in the present and in eternity.

strong and delicate, at the same time
serene yet often struggling
joyful but in sorrow as the old self dies
alone but in community
unmarried however wedded to the greatest bridegroom
