Some of our favorite sisters make Time Magazine
Combatting the axiom that no news is good news, the latest issue of Time takes a look at the communities of women religious whose numbers are growing and whose average age is dropping. It's a familiar story to the blogosphere by now, but not so much to your average Time reader.
Towards the end of the article, it seems as though the author might be ascribing some of the success of these communities to their technological savvy, rather than more substantial attributes. On the whole, though, it was a pleasant, uplifting, and honest article, and I experienced remarkably little of the internal cringing I generally go through when reading MSM pieces about Catholicism.
