This holy trio of Dominican nuns shows that God can call any type to the convent

If you ask most people to tell you which of their acquaintances is most likely to become a nun, nine times out of 10 you’ll be directed to the shy, quiet, awkward girl. But anyone who’s spent 10 minutes with a group of nuns will tell you that not every nun is meek and homely—quite the contrary. Convents are filled with beauty queens, actresses, and investment bankers, filled with the shy retiring type, the loud and sassy type, and plenty of “problems like Maria.”

On June 8, the Church celebrates a group of these nuns: Blesseds Diana, Amata, and Cecilia, friends of St. Dominic and among the very first Dominican nuns.
