My Friends on Oprah: Sisters of Mary on their Recent Show

by Steve Ray on February 12, 2010

This is worth watching. I know the Sisters of Mary, Mother of the Eucharist. These sisters are nine minutes from my house and we know many of them and visit their convent frequently. They do a delightful job of explaining and presenting themselves on the Oprah Winfrey Show.

This is one of many things that make me proud to be Catholic. Where do you find an institution that allows you to live out your calling for God if it is the single life? Jesus mentions those who are gifted to remain celibate, St. Paul lauds the single life of dedication to God. But how does one live out this life? The Catholic Church has made beautiful options for those who are called to such a life of devotion to God.

Steve, thank you for posting these. I enjoyed watching them. I thought both Oprah and Lisa Ling did a respectful interview with the sisters. And hopefully opened the eyes of those that are so ignorant of our Catholic faith.

P.S. My husband wouldn’t mind if our daughter (whom is now 6) had a calling to become a nun. :)

I remember seeing the Mother of this convent on EWTN and she was mentioning that they are thriving and always welcoming new sisters,,,,,,well, this convent will be BURSTING and overflowing with women seeking this WONDERFUL life!!! If I was 21 again I would be making a beeline for their front door.
I am very very surprised that Oprah and Lisa Ling did such a respectfull show. Like the sisters said, “God is Good”!
