Almost wordless almost Wednesday!

I found this photo from Shorpy.com and just had to share it. This is a photo of the photographer's five aunts, and all but one became nuns. Occasionally, I am asked to create a special "sister" for nuns celebrating special anniversaries, but it is rare that I am asked to create one for those entering the convent. As shown in this picture from "back in the day", it was quite an accepted practice that someone in a family would have a vocation for this calling....likely very rare that four people would!

  1. Great picture! Wanna bet that the brother (not shown) became a priest?
