Ok, not literally. But they are the subject of an upcoming documentary film, and you can play a small part. Let me explain.
If you follow this blog, you know that we love the Nuns on the Bus and their efforts to stand up to the Vatican and create a space in Catholicism for women’s leadership. They are warriors for the poor, sick, disadvantaged, and downtrodden. They are radical feminists facing down the Catholic Church, possibly the most patriarchal entity there is; a battle worth waging, and inspiring to even heathen folk like myself.
The film in progress, from Do-Gooder Productions, follows their journey as they stand up for their spiritual convictions.
Where do you come in? The working title is “Sisters,” but the they’ve been running a contest and asking for people to submit a new title to re-christen it. You can go do that, here, after you’ve watched the movie trailer.
And then if you want, you can pay a visit to our guest blogger Jamie Utitus’s post from last year that discusses her love for the Sisters and why they are important to feminists of faith, here.
If you want to put the Christ back in Christmas, showing some love and support to these women religious is a great place to start.
