The animals, the nuns and the wardrobe

Scenes from Benedictine life in America. Benedictines brought civilisation to the whole world, not look at their sorry state, exemplified by these Sisters of St Scholastica.

Nuns to a woman

Even though the clock is ticking on these children of 1968.

They just love dressing up

Nuns are meant to take leave of the world, not leave of their senses. The one in green is not of this world, but not in the classical sense, rather in science fiction.

You are my sunshine. Shades of the Wizard of Oz.

The elephant never forgets. But they all have forgotten the Faith.

They chickened out of real religious life years ago.

This is no Noah's Ark. There will be no dove, no rainbow, no falling back of the waters for this sorry crew.

My comments are strong but I suspect St Scholastica would have some even more direct comments for them.

As would St Benedict, seen here instructing his beloved Sister Scholastica.

Not least, the Founders would wonder what need they had of a Labyrinth when they followed the Rule written by St Benedict. Seen here the Labyrinth under construction.

Cathcon has already covered a similar outfit, The Doom (sorry that should be the Dome).
