In this Random Nun Clip from the Motherhouse Road Trip's visit to the Sisters of St. Joseph of Carondelet in St. Paul, Minnesota, Sr. Cathy Steffens responds to a listener, a mother who wonders how she can adapt "nun prayer practices" to help when she's feeling distant from God.

Steffens recalls a recent experience of caring for grandnieces and how she had to adjust her own prayer life: "These children are the face of God right now for me."
