I finally got around to watching this. It is VERY interesting, but it did not make me want to run off to a convent.
It's 36 minutes long and can be watched here if anybody else would like to see it: http://viewpure.com/FjGld7U0Mgs
Some of the statements that stood out for me were:
I had to get used to be in relationship with everybody all the time...
That sort of surprised me. I thought of contemplative nuns being more alone and praying a lot.
It was 20 times harder than I thought it would be.
I have always thought being a nun or sister would be incredibly difficult.
A monastery is a prayer power house. ... we're carrying a lot for people.
This is something I've only understood recently. A lot of non-Catholics (going on what I believed and what Protestants have said to me) think they are just a bunch of wimpy escapists. Quite the contrary.
I was surprised that she kissed him... It was confusing that sometimes the nuns were behind screens when they spoke with visitors and then she was with him and they kissed.
So many of the women were called "Mother." How many "mothers" does a convent have? I thought just one, or maybe two if one sort of retired due to age or health.
