whispered love
ordinary purity




I love the thought of ordinary innocence and purity. Here is a lovely picture of two nuns, who look so real and ordinary, and happy too. I will try to live in a kind of sisterhood with them. Just ordinary and trying to walk with God.

And here is the purity and innocence that God can clothe us with:

I wish so much I could come home from working in the hospital, and have a shower, and put on my habit, and live and serve and laugh and pray with other sisters. And go deep deep into the innocence of God. Even as I live out here in the world beyond their convent, with meals to cook, and people to care for. Even so, I am glad for the ordinary purity that God gives countless sisters in religious life, and God can give to you or me.
