God bless these nuns. But, as a Christian I wouldn't step within 1000 miles of a Muslim community in the Middle East. God protect these brave women.

This is the most moving, the very best post I have read in a while.  Thank you mrclose for providing this point of view.  It is both beautiful and horrifying at the same time.  No words.  May Our Lord grant them his protective hand.

85 people have viewed this thread, and I bet nearly all of them read it. Sometimes, people just don't have a reply. It's an excellent read!

I'm sorry that my post sounded as if I was talking about the folks here.

I meant folks in general.

Sorry I misunderstood. I just wanted you to know that your posts, as well as most of ours, get read, but not replied to.  There are many, many good threads here.
