Class, Real Class

Magnificent vestments worn by the Roman Pontiff in Sydney

a REAL nun (what we called a R.N. in the seminary, as opposed to an L.P.N., i.e., 'Likes to Play Nun': no veil, no habit)

RN - I love it.
I like to say "uninhabited" for the habitless nuns.

In my generation, "L.P.N." stood for "Lapel Pin Nun".

As an R.N. this made me chuckle.. would that make an L.V.N. a "lost the veil nun?"
great pictures of Pope Benedict, Father, God Bless you both!

Oh, Father...
I didn't just get a chuckle out the R.N./L.P.N. part of the post - I actually laughed aloud. Thanks for the laugh - and the beautiful pictures of the Holy Father! Peace. ~~~mary
