How can sports like open-water swimming be a form of prayer?

In this Random Nun Clip, we talk with Sr. Anita Quigley, one of two guests from the Society of the Holy Child Jesus of Rosemont, Pennsylvania, community about the prayerful nature of open-water swimming.

For one thing, when it's just you and the water, there are no distractions.
