To feed the hungry all it takes sometimes is a nun with a hunting rifle, tactical habit, and rosary. I wonder if her brother is Father Eddie Bauer.
When I see deer in our archipelago I see animals spreading ticks which cause Borrelia/Lyme disease, which is very nasty. Nothing cute there. Better to fill up the freezers with said deers.
My husband carries a handgun and I carry a rosary. I think we’ve got it covered. Need a couple more tubs of MREs though…
Can’t use semi auto rifles in PA for hunting large game yet.
Not exactly a rat on the hoof… More like a steak, or horned wild cow. Yeah, they’re cute alright, right up until the moment one comes crashing through your windshield at 10 o’clock at night (or 5 in the morning). There is much sturm and drung here about the bear hunt. Please. I saw where someone had hit one with his car out by Flanders, NJ the other day. I say, Sister, if you have the time, come on out here to NJ and bag a bear!
Was she really in a tree stand in her habit? (I have to admit that would be kinda cool.)
Perhaps Sister could bring her skills to Southeastern Pennsylvania. The controlled hunt to cull the excess deer population in Philadelphia’s Fairmount Park has been extended through March.
I grew up on the other side of PA from her, in an area where schools were closed on the first day of deer season. I still don’t get why people are upset. Where do they think their food comes from? I suppose if I could listen somewhat respectfully to the crticism if it came from a pro (human) life vegetarian.
Speaking as a non-vegetarian, “seamless garment”, urbanite son of Vatican II who is concerned about the potential implications of climate change (read “liberal-leaning”, though I think I’m a “centrist”), I don’t understand the anti-hunting crowd either. I think the extreme animal rights activists don’t seem to have an inkling that, if humans stopped eating meat, animals would still be killed and eaten by carnivores.
Father had a lot to say about works of mercy in his homily this morning. Sister is a living illustration of the first corporal work, good for her!
“…And please, O St. Hubert, let her carry a handgun in case of a necessary coup de grâce… etc.”
I also love the fact that Sister bagged her prize in full habit, having climbed a tree and done what needed doing. Not exactly the poster child of the Left.
For those who may not be aware, there is a movement among some in the “save the earth” crowd who think we shouldn’t eat meat. Cows and cattle create methane that pollutes the atmosphere, they say.
As for me, I love animals. . . they’re delicious!
As part of my new evangelization apostolate for the Year of Mercy, I emailed this story to my non-practicing Catholic friends who hunt and haven’t killed a deer in the last few years .
This happened in my hometown. Hunting is so widely practiced there that the First Day of Hunting Season is practically an official holiday (Cyber Monday for everyone else); schools close, businesses shut down, factories shut down, you get the point. I hate how it is okay for most people to buy meat in stores but if you do the work to get it, then its wrong. I loved venison growing up and my dad made sure we had a steady supply.
The Benedictine Sisters Monastery was the first home for Benedictine nuns in the USA. As a child I would walk through the grounds and went to a Parochial school on the grounds. AND it was closed just a year or two ago…the school and the monastery, fortunately the church hasn’t been shuttered yet. This woman and her community have been through the ringer in the past few years. Shame on everyone who can’t let Sister have this moment of pride.
“this woman and her community have been through the ringer in the past few years”
When I saw “Erie PA” and “Benedictines” I immediately thought of the wacko far leftist community to which Sr. Joan Chittister belonged (IIRC), and nearly burst out laughing at the thought of one of them going deer hunting in full habit. Of course, upon more careful reading I see that this is “a” Benedictine community in the Diocese of Erie, NOT “the” Erie Benedictines, I presume. Are they a brand new community or did “the” Erie Benedictines get their act together somehow?
In Eastern Ohio, there is a charity called something like Hunters for the Harvest that collects food from local farmers and hunters and gets it to food pantries and shutins and hot meal places and such. Ohio’s state wildlife agency gives them a bunch of tags to go hunting for the poor, and also funds the meat processing of game. I saw a presentation about it on TV, and they said that meat protein is very beneficial for the poor, particularly children and the elderly. They are growing a lot because they are so efficient in their use of the meat.
Oops. It is Farmers and Hunters Feeding the Hungry (FHFH), but the Ohio DNR Division of Wildlife webpage says that Sportsmen Against Hunger and Whitetails Unlimited also help hunters donate venison.
Anyway, FHFH gets 200 meals out of every deer.
