Sandra Scroggins I have that book! It was prefaced by Fulton J Sheen and detailed the life and stages of a girl who would enter the Society. I purchased this book through Preserving Christian Publications several years ago (8 or so). They would go around collecting books from libraries of closed or defunct Catholic religious orders, colleges, schools etc. I have a number of year books of various religious Orders through them. For me these books are eyewitnesses to a life that is only held in high regard by the people who interacted with these nuns who lived a truly religious life. It seems the nuns themselves abandoned the whole thing pretty much en masse either by leaving in person, or by staying with the Order while it morphed into a totally modernist version of what had been a truly Catholic religious Order. The world is a sorrier place because of the loss of nuns and sisters. Many many of the ones who left were the ones who really should have stayed to help them out of their loss of equilibrium from post Vatican II madness.

THE SISTERS SHOULD GO BACK TO WEARING THE ORIGINAL HABITS.YOU CANNOT TELL TODAY IF THE PERSON IS A NUN.I OFTEN THOUGHT OF BECOMING A NUN,I WOULD HAVE BEEN PROUD TO WEAR THE HABIT.
