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.
