Sisters of Mercy, from Russia

These young ladies are so precious! The audio is not so great but just watching them is enough. 🙂 They work as lay women alongside a monastery to help homeless and drug/alcohol addicts.

    Very interesting. I never knew there was such a thing as Lay Sisters. I have never seen it with our Apostolic Orthodox church but maybe it’s just with certain churches.

    Thank you for sharing

    That’s lovely 🙂 I went to an all women’s Catholic University and we had some of the most adorable sisters of mercy there as it is a mercy univeristy run by them. Ill never forget Sister Maria – we caled her the floating nun because wherever she went, in her little black dress, perfectly polished shoes and habbit with just the faintest silver curl poking out, she looked like she was floating on air with just the most precious glow of God Ive ever seen 🙂

"I wanted you to see what real courage is, instead of getting the idea that courage is a man with a gun in his hand. It's when you know you are licked before you begin but you begin anyway and you see it through no matter what." No idea where that last quote came from, but I like it!
