NOT an underwear thread!

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
So, I had to give a couple of more vocation talks to the girls at our high school today. No underwear questions this time, but one did ask what would happen if one nun caught another kissing a guy. Where do they come up with this stuff? Are they trying to shock me? Not much does. I think it shocked them when I mentioned having four cats.

So, what were the nun and the other guy wearing? Sorry, coudln't resist...

You should have told them that if it were you and the "other guy" was George Clooney, you would expect a big round of applause!

I'm not going there!

Knowing our Sisters, that's exactly how they'd react if it was George and me!

I have 5 grandkids 18 down to 13 and trying to keep them safe from the way they think is hard enough

A dumb question here - if a nun was caught with a man, would she be kicked out of "nun hood" ?

So what if the guy she was kissing was her dad or brother.??? They might be assuming too much!!

You guys are making me laugh. But Sam.... you are right! Eileen is AVOIDING the question! All she did was remark how the kids were trying to shock her.

I can't stand all the pressure!

Basically what I told the girls is that the situation would probably cause some initial surprise and shock, but not anger. Most women's religious communities today are very supportive of their members' emotional and spiritual wellbeing. If it was just a one time thing for the nun "caught" in the act, and she'd been otherwise faithful to her vows, she wouldn't be asked to leave the community. Of course, if that's what she chose, her decision would be supported and accepted. The community would definitely want to work with her either way to identify any underlying issues or needs she might have. If it was mutually determined that her needs weren't being met in religious life, that she couldn't remain faithful to her vows and would be happier as a single woman free to pursue an intimate relationship, then
she would be encouraged to request a dispensation of her vows, again with the support of the community. Hopefully, she would have the maturity and common sense to realize this herself.

How's that? Any more questions? Believe me, I've heard 'em all from the girls!

When I was in first grade, my teacher, Sister Rose Marie, left midway through the year. We found out she and one of the parish priests had eloped! (She hadn't taken final vows, so that was considered not so bad, but he had, so he was excommunicated, so we were told...)

Had to come back and find the answer. That's nice. So , if she chose to leave she could still be with the church?

Absolutely! Requesting a dispensation of her vows wouldn't change her status as a member of the church.
