Dominican Sisters to Appear on Oprah...

UPDATE: See the video HERE !
This is so cool. I pray that Oprah 's crew does an honest job of it. It's not hard to see beauty in the smiles and lives of these women but I believe the secular media could mangle just about anything. Praying that hearts will be touched, lives changed, and that some young women out there will recognize their calling!

Dear Friends of the Dominican Sisters of Mary,
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.       
A camera crew came to the Motherhouse in Ann Arbor at the beginning of this week, and then on Thursday, Sr. Mary Samuel, Sr. John Dominic, Sr. Mary Judith, and Sr. Francis Mary were flown to Chicago for the taping. Some of our Novices and Postulants also participated in the taping from the Motherhouse via “Skype"

The show will air on Tuesday, February 9th, so be sure to check your local listings for the time and station in your area. If you can’t watch it then, be sure to record it, as her producers have let us know that they do not send out copies of any show. And please, spread the word!
In the meantime, please join us in praying that Our Lord will use this television show to touch the hearts of many, so that they may come to know Him and His boundless love and mercy.
God bless you!
