How to create a fictional, convincing nun

In this Random Nun Clip, a writer named Maria asks the sisters how to create a convincing nun character for a new novel. Maria asks for insight in order to make the woman as real as possible. The sisters suggest that Maria consider what is the protagonist's model of holiness, what is her prayer life like? What is her community life like, and how does she relate to her fellow sisters in community?

Hosted by Sister Maxine with guests St. Francis of the Holy Cross Srs. Laura Zelten and Sr. Mary Kabat.
