Dominican Sisters on Oprah TODAY

I don’t normally recommend watching Oprah, but will gladly make an exception in this case.:smiley:

[FONT=Verdana]In this age of instant communications, word travels fast, so you may have already heard the news: we will be appearing on the Oprah Winfrey Show on Tuesday, February 9, which also happens to be the 13th anniversary of the founding of our Community. Oprah was interested in doing a show on religious life as a hidden way of life which many people never experience, and so her producers asked us if we would be willing to welcome them. We accepted this invitation as an opportunity to share our life, and by extension, the Gospel, with an audience that we might not ever reach otherwise. [/FONT]



There will NOT be copies available of the show, so if you want to see it you need to watch it today or record it.:slight_smile:

today is monday febuary 8th. it says the show airs tuesday febuary 9th. but you said watch it today. I’m confused, is it today or tommorow?

It will air tomorrow, the OP apparently got confused. I’ve already set up my Tivo to record tomorrow’s Oprah (I don’t usually want either). The program description provided by Tivo confirms, the sisters will be on tomorrows episode.

Yea, I got the date confused. Sorry. Hope you were able to figure it out in time to watch it.

*This stinks…I was home sick yesterday! And missed it. :o So…for those who watched it, what did you think? *

It was really excellent. The Sisters were very well-spoken and deep-thinking. I think a lot of people in the U.S. have a totally different viewpoint of “nuns” after watching this show.

I loved the comment of the older sister who was in charge (not sure what her title is). She said there are two things she always has with her: her Rosary and her Blackberry! I think that this whimsical statement probably won over a lot of women who have always thought that nuns are oppressed.

it was so refreshing to see the religous life cast in a positive ight. even Lisa Ling said that the nuns were liberated! let’s pray for the fruits of this show.
