The Fencing Nun

Always cool to read positive stories about Catholics who were called to religious life doing something eye-catching. In this case, we have a fencing nun in Chicago. And the way she explained her choice to become a nun was really nice.

"It's more of a feeling within yourself, within your heart," Solak said about her decision to become a Dominican nun. "I think it's true in the same way if you find the right guy. You know it's the right one for you. You can't explain it intellectually. It's a feeling, a feeling you are in the right place."
I always wanted to try fencing when I was a boy. So in a way, I'm a little jealous of her. But very happy that she is able to show people that nuns can be really cool people.

    About This Blog

    A blog for the masses, if by masses you mean myself and family members who probably read this out of pity.

    I'm dustin Faber, the 16-bit Catholic. This blog is an amusing, sometimes thought-provoking look at my life and the world around me. Poetry, cooking recipes, gaming, faith, things that make me go awww, things that make me go grrr, and my obsession with a good glass of root beer can be found here.
