Sister Christian… oh, your time has come

scYes, it’s in the news today. A beauty pageant for nuns! An online event organized in Rome by… a priest, no less! I wonder if the Pope is progressive enough to give this peculiar idea a real go.

But hold your horses. Some things were made clear…

We are not going to parade nuns in bathing suits. But being ugly is not a requirement for becoming a nun. External beauty is gift from God, and we mustn’t hide it.

My oh my, how times have changed! So, who would you vote for Miss Sister 2008?

Updated: This event was canceled as of August 26.

  1. This is weird (and kinda wonderful) news Chris. I agree, being ugly is not a requirement for being a nun. I went to a convent high school, my teachers there (mostly nuns) all rocked! They were wonderful, supportive teachers and not an ugly to be found in the group LOL!!!

    Great post. G

    I’m just curious as to what kind of reception it would have on a global scale, really. Can’t wait to find out.
