Having moved recently, I am now keenly aware of the sounds in my new environment. Water dripping, air conditioning or heater running, floor creaks, bird calls, traffic in the distance, overhead light hums, and more!
Tonight (Friday) ABC’s 20/20 is airing a special 2-hour segment called “Seeing and Believing: The Power of Faith” at 9 p.m. EDT (check local listings). Part of the segment includes a section on “Silent Nuns” in which Diane Sawyer visits with cloistered nuns in a New Mexico convent.

The author, Annice Callahan, RSCJ (who was teaching at Regis College in Toronto while I was studying there), writes about one of theologian Father Karl Rahner, SJ’s central messages in all of his theology (and trust me, he’s written a lot … he happens to be my all-time favorite theologian and the subject of my Masters’ thesis).
