Some Easter joy - or nun fun

We are just coming up to one month since March 13th when Cardinal Jorge Bergoglio of Buenos Aires was elected Pope and took the name Francis. It was an exciting evening, and I came across a fun video of a convent in Ann Arbor, Michigan. Their recording of an album was interrupted by news that there was white smoke...   Take a look here.  
These are the Dominican Sisters of Mary, Mother of the Eucharist. Founded in 1997, they have grown from 4 sisters (pictured left with late Cardinal O'Connor of New York) to 115. Average age is 28, average age at entering is 21. Check out their own website here to see a religious order really making excellent use of modern media. 
But more than that, look at the video and the website if you want to see some happy young women... who also happen to be Catholic nuns in 2013!
