Today I had a breakfast date with my nephew Lucas. He is 6 years old. We went to have coffee, apple juice and bagels (very sticky cinnamon sugar bagels). We chatted about many things. Let me tell you a little about this great kid. Lucas and his older brother Jared enjoy playing outside with their friends. Lucas’s favorite video game is Star Wars Legos I. He loves the books Kissing Hand and its sequel A Pocket Full of Kisses. His favorite thing about Christmas is spending time with his family.

Lucas came to my final profession in February and met many of my sisters. I asked him this morning what he thought of nuns and what he thinks about me being a nun. Here’s what he said:

“Nuns write. They play video games. Some nuns wear regular clothes. Some nuns eat. Nuns pray because they are persons of God. They please God. They are nice people and they help God. I like nuns because my aunt is a nun.”

So there you have it. Not a bad way to be known in the world!
