Me as a person is not very religious. Maybe that is why I do not have a close friend who is a priest, a pastor, a religious preacher or a nun.
I have always been fascinated with nuns. When I was young (even until now), I always perceive them to be so beautiful (not on a sexy way though) and so clean. I always wonder how these ladies can keep themselves so fresh and unsoiled all day long. I actually have yet to see a dirty nun. I have seen them walk the street – rally wise or not – and yet they can keep their cool disposition and tidiness even under the heat of a scorching sun and dusty air of the metropolis.
In my whole life, I just had two nun teachers. One was during grade school days, a missionary nun who would teach the virtues of the Catholic religion during homeroom subject – too bad I forgot her name. The other was in college who taught me all my Theology subjects, her name is Sister Fermina. Too bad during those times, I was too afraid to ask these two ladies how can they keep themselves so neat.
I guess a lot of people will answer this question by saying… “Maybe it is because the cleanliness of their spirit and peacefulness of their minds radiates to their physical being”.
