Maryknollers after 50 years

Filed under: Just Stuff,Life as a Nun — theotheri @ 9:37 pm

Early next week I am flying to the US for a reunion of about a third of the women who entered Maryknoll the same year I did.  Most of us left Maryknoll years ago, and hold an amazingly diverse array of current beliefs.   The group includes doctors, psychologists, nurses, writers, social workers, lingists  and everything from practicising Buddhists,  Christian fundamentalists and serious non-believers in most religious doctrine.  I’m looking forward to the weekend with a mixture of apprehension and interest.  More after the event.

Before leaving I must fit in a dentist appointment.  I lost a gold filling, which I swallowed before I realized I wasn’t crunching on a nut.  If the dentist I’m seeing Monday is half as good as the ophthalmological consultant who transformed my eyesight, I will consider myself undeservedly doubly fortunate.
