The Deacon's Bench

Nuns on the run

This is really delightful — and on a local news station, no less. Enjoy. H/T The A.

Perhaps the mighty Isis will help out too, maybe the Sun god as well.
I wonder if these women have ever had to mannage a budget??
Likely not.

Where DO you find your readers, Deac?
The nuns have been trying to build a monastery chapel and enclosure for several years and they’ve made great headway. A “running” fundraiser is a great idea. I hope God blesses them ABUNDANTLY, so that they can pray for us. We need it.

@ Ron S. – yeah just the budget of the EWTN radio, internet and tv empire, as well as the budget of the monastery in Alabama that built a huge chapel complex. Their reach is worldwide, yours is not- Thanks be to God. Idiot.
