Hello, everyone. I’m trying to help my mother. She saw a nationally televised program a while back (not sure how long ago, but it wasn’t recent - more than 1.5 years ago, I’m thinking) that was about a group of nuns that receive prayer requests from all over the world and they do fantastic things. My mom’s a great believer in the power of prayer. I know virtually every nun or group of nuns or convents, etc. take prayer requests, but she was particularly taken with the subjects of this television broadcast.
She’s not sure what show it was, but thinks it was either 60 minutes, Dateline or perhaps 20/20. It could be something else, maybe, but it was a format along those lines. It was a nationally televised broadcast. She wants to get in touch with them.
I’ve done a little searching on my own and I could only find a 20/20 episode with Diane Sawyer regarding St. Clare of Assisi in New Mexico, but my mom doesn’t think that is the one. She doesn’t recall it being a cloistered community and thinks it was more in the mid west somewhere. I see that there’s a St. Clare community in Ohio but that one wasn’t featured in the Diane Sawyer piece.
Apparently this place is fairly well known but I haven’t had much luck in finding it.
I was just wondering if anyone here would know of the televised feature story that she is thinking of?
Thanks so much for any help you might be able to provide!
