Sisters of Charity
- We arrive on campus after dark and begin looking for the Mary statute as our landmark for where to turn next. Along the way, we see multiple Marys to guide us!
- We’re in bourbon country! Over breakfast, the sisters explain the religious roots of the spirits.
- Our podcast guests, Sister Brenda and Sister Marie, offer insights on the topic of charity, talking about it as an invitation of love.
- Sister Brenda takes us on a short drive to the Abbey of Gethsemani, where we join in prayer with the Trappist monks and visit the grave of Thomas Merton.
