St Luke's Summer
20/October/2007 Filed in: Jottings
The sun is streaming through the windows, scarcely noticed by the toiler at the desktop. That would have pleased A. W. N. Pugin (of whom, by the way, I am a great admirer). He had some rather odd ideas about nuns, one of them being that they should mortify their senses by not looking out of windows. We smile at the notion now, but the idea that nuns are somehow a race apart still persists in places. Today's podcast is a brief reflection by our oldest community member on the relationship between being a nun and a feminist. It is also a mini-review of a book that may interest you.
