Spanish Nuns Turn to YouTube to Gain Exposure

Ever wonder what life would be like living in a convent as a nun? Well, Sisters at the San Jose convent in Southern Spain are opening their doors to a world wide audience.  You can watch the nuns reading, praying, baking and sewing with Spanish messages overlaid the still pictures. Russia Today reports that the mother superior, Mother Isabel, turned to the internet to entice new members to the profession, and help save their 14th century convent from closing. She says, “If the rest of the world is on the internet, then why shouldn’t we be there too?”

For the record, the nuns posted their video several weeks before the Vatican jumped on YouTube.
