It’s easy to become sentimental about the beauty of the holy habit, so here instead is a little tribute to the ones that are… kind of oddball. I’m not talking about things that are unusual-but-cool, like











but more like







(Congregation of Notre Dame de Montreal)





(School Sisters of Notre Dame)






















(Sisters of Misericorde)







(Holy Cross Sisters – well, they had to be in here somewhere!)

and my personal favourite…






(Sisters of Providence of St Vincent de Paul. They were still wearing this habit in 1954.)

Have a good day, Leonie’s Ladies!
