I've learned since I started hanging out with the Sisters way back in 1998 (yikes!)...that religious life is a culture of it's own! We have rituals, celebrations, foods, clothing, symbols, and even a unique language. Since my other blog is about my adventures as a woman relgious in the 21st century...I thought it would be helpful to have a little guide to the Culture of Religious life. So I'll try to use this space to define terms and give some little background here on that kind of stuff. I affectionately have called this section Nunspeak.
Hooo rah rah...
