Life with nuns from another time.
Now a book that introduces girls to a group of real nuns of yesteryear--and to Catholic girls just like themselves.
This charming book, written in the form of a diary of a young lady attending--and loving--a convent boarding school, learning her Faith and developing friendships with other girls, has captured the hearts of Catholic girls for decades. Here we meet young women being taught by nuns who loved both Christ and the many girls entrusted to them...
The book brings out the individuality of the girls as they grow in the Faith and develop their hearts. It displays a sense of order in the schools and in the lives of the girls. The girls learn neatness...order...a prayer life...a sense of balanced hierarchy...duty...how to love sweetly. It is both consoling and supporting--as are the nuns portrayed here, who, incidentally, are based on real figures from a real boarding school in the early to mid-20th century.
The kind of things girls learned in this school…
"Every person in the world has a secret sorrow that nobody knows about. I always thought my Auntie Ethelyn was the merriest person on earth. She was always laughing and singing, and she was always so good-natured, and her friends always went to her to get cheered up. She never seemed like an "old maid," but just like a big girl in grammar school. She seemed to be so easy-going and contented that it would almost make you want to be an old maid just like her because she was happier than other ladies, especially the married ones. If my lovely joyful Auntie could have a hidden suffering, then everybody must have a hidden suffering, and this world is truly a vale of tears."
"All the students in our school have to wear uniforms. Sister Superior told us that we wear uniforms to give us unity and equality, and to remind us that we are all the same in the sight of God, whether we are rich or poor, whether we have talents or not."
"[Sister] said that all young people, boys and girls, soon find out that they are weak, and if no one explains to them that it is from original sin, they begin to think that they are wicked all over; and they grow sad and discouraged and might even give up trying to be good and holy. She said that in spite of the effects original sin has left in us, we were all noble and wonderful and lovely as flowers deep down in us, and we ought to let that wonderful part come out and not the bad part. She said we mustn't talk about certain things because it doesn't do any good to talk about them."
