Interview with a Nashville Dominican: A Day in the Life of a Nun

Apr 14, 2016 by

If you haven't seen this excellent interview with Sister John Catherine of the Nashville Dominicans, you don't want to miss it.  Here she is interviewed by a non-Catholic Christian who seeks to better understand what a life consecrated to God means, and what it looks like as practiced in the daily life of her convent.

In this interview Sr. John Catherine gives a beautiful witness; a clear and inspiring account of the vocation to the religious life and being consecrated to God through the vows of poverty, chastity, and obedience. Watch, enjoy, and share!

“All of the rules are really geared towards that commitment to the Lord, that following of Christ. And so everything that you could set up and say, ‘well there’s the boundary’ the reason that that’s there is to free us to live this call in love for the Lord and in service to the Church.” - Sr. John Catherine
