Nun Story

She is the type of nun I love--tough on the outside, almost manlike. Intimidating to some. Smart and professional and left-brained. But when she begins to talk about a moment of essential connection, when she describes herself 30 years ago as a "new, green chaplain," explaining how a patient transformed into a human being right before her eyes in the moment she listened to the internal prompting to touch his arm, I knew it was there. The love of Christ. The still-awe-inspiring power of God's absolutely transforming LOVE. It was still transforming her, repeating this story, three decades later. This is my first day of CPE, and I know I'm in the right place.
