    What a wonderment to see Catholicism and religious life presented with such candor, respect and joy! God bless the sisters, they make me feel so deeply grateful that I am a Catholic woman!!

    I saw it, too, and it was fabulous. The sisters are beautiful in every way, and I got a real kick out of watching them play field hockey!
