An Italian priest is organizing a beauty pageant for nuns, with over one thousand entries expected. It's disgraceful. I thought nuns had a spiritual mission to pray for the Church, in particular, to be part of the spiritual army of prayer warriors that intercede with God for good, holy priests. Apparently this particular priest thinks the contest will help attract young women to a vocation as a nun. Here's a news flash for you, Father. We need nuns who pray and set a good example of holiness, chastity and humility. There is not enough of that to go around.
