StoryTelling: Be a Nun in Italy, Le Marche

URBINO, Italy - An irrevocable vow binds the women who choose this order of marriage, the marriage to God. Every word spoken regarding her baptism as a nun launches a smile as Sister Antida Tavoni recalls her engagement with her heavenly spouse. It's quiet in Suore della Carita Pensionato Universitario S. Felicita, a dormitory in Urbino that houses female students and is maintained by six nuns from the Sisters of Charity congregation.
"The moment in which I understood that I had the vocation to become a nun, it was like an engagement," she remembers. "As a young woman falls in love with a young man, I fell in love with the Lord."
Special thanks to Silvia Verducci for translations!
