OHIO––A group of Catholic nuns began a 1,000 mile bus tour through Ohio this week asking locals whether or not they have seen their veils. The group of about 20 nuns departed Cincinnati early Wednesday morning after every single one of them realized that they had not seen their veils in over four decades. The youngest of the group, Sister Mary Fleischer, 79, told Eye of the Tiber that losing things had become all too familiar for the group lately, joking, “I just hope we don’t lose our minds next.” Then, turning to a complete stranger, said, “Isn’t that just the darndest thing? Honestly, I could of swore I left it right here. Wait a minute, you’re not my son. I don’t even have a son. Who am I?”

    I stole their veils! Makes em liberal, just like I like them!

  • Poor Yorek

    Dear Sister: your veil is right before your eyes. This is why you couldn’t find it.

      AMEN. Their eyes are veiled by the veils they lost.

      head to eyes;
      orthodoxy to heterodoxy.

        Hear hear! How true.
        Lets hope our new Holy Father deals with these ladies and with love draws them back to the Church or gently reminds themthat they have left the Church if they continue with their heterodox views.

    Yeah, just like they lost their Faith!

  • Maybe their veils experienced a kind of conscious evolution that allowed them to ascend beyond Jesus to a new old reality that is resulting in these orders dying out (by God’s mercy – and Lord have mercy on their souls).

    Especially since Annibale Bugnini, (a hero to the nones on the bus) stated to the media that chapel veils were not a topic of discussion at Vatican Council II, the nones took it as the green light to lose the habit of wearing them…..

    It looks like a photo from the Union of Catholic (Grand)Mothers’ jolly-up to Blackpool circa 1992 (judging by the clothing). Looking for veils? More likely to find Kiss-Me-Quicks and sticks of rock.
