This book peaked my interest after recently spending a "Vocations Week" with my students. We studied the history of various religious orders and wrote to different convents from around the world! It was exciting to see what would come in the mail next. As well as hearing from Franciscans, we even were sent a coloring book of Benedictine life in a French convent! Each little picture was drawn by the Sisters there. We received letters from Dominican Sisters in New Zealand and from some Carmelite Sisters in Wyoming, who simply signed their letter "The Carmelites" and never once used the word "I."
In the letter from the Carmelites, we received a beautiful holy card I'd never seen before: the Carmelite Sisters on their way to the guillotine.
