NUNDAY The Original Flying Nun, Sister Mary Aquinas Kinskey, OSF

Blog Published: November 5, 2012

Most of us when we hear the words the “Flying Nun” immediately think of the 1960s comedy sitcom of the same name starring actor Sally Field as the Daughter of Charity, Sister Bertrille. Sister Batrille’s habit included a large, almost winged, head covering. Each time a wind came up it would cause Sister Bertrille to lift off the ground and fly. The comedy of course is that this happened at the most awkward of times.

Blog Published: February 18, 2010

Today we celebrate an Olympian who is now a Franciscan nun. Kirstin Holum was just 17 years old when she competed in speedskating at the 1998 Winter Olympics in Nagano. She took 6th place in the 3000 meter which was considered a great achievement and a sign for future greatness.

God desires that we each find that path that will allow us to grow to be the persons we were created to be in God’s mind and heart. For me, religious life is that choice and that journey.
