A young lady who was the Valedictorian at Harvard, Mary Anne Marks, has entered religious life with the Dominican Sisters of Mary, Mother of the Eucharist, in Ann Arbor, Michigan.
You’ll notice that she didn’t join the Liberated Community of the Expanding Cosmic Consciousness Egg or the Women Who Have Moved Beyond Jesus or even the Nuns on the Bus or any of the other LCWR type groups. Nope. She went for some real nuns.
Here is a video of her address at commencement … in Latin.
The Classical pronunciation takes me back to my own days of first and advanced Latin studies.
She did pretty well! And it was also a good thing to see someone give a memorized address.
Kathryn Jean Lopez has an interview with her HERE.
