U.S. sisters (a.k.a. “nuns”) received loads of attention from certain Vatican offices these last few months. Whether it’s the apostolic visitation report, the assessment of the LCWR or the critique of a book, if you follow Catholic websites and blogs, one would think this is the only news nuns are making these days.
But did you know there are a number of nuns who launched a bus tour yesterday on behalf of the poor?
I think it’s time we all learned more here.
Want to meet in person a nun who believes in political outreach on behalf of the poor? Look here to see if “Nuns on the Bus” will be stopping at a city near you.
Maybe I’ll clear my schedule and be with them next Monday, June 25, at 10 a.m.?
For sure, I’ll be following along on Twitter using the hashtag #nunsonthebus.
