With all the Sister Jean hoopla sweeping the nation, I was curious what’s the difference between a sister and a nun, and I came across this description below.
A major traditional distinction between a nun and a religious sister is that nuns are members of enclosed religious orders and take solemn religious vows, while sisters do not live in the papal enclosure and formerly took vows called “simple vows”.
Ok, got it. ON to the good part. Sister Jean Dolores Schmidt, the 98-year-old team chaplain for NCAA Tournament Cinderella Loyola-Chicago, had her March Madness bracket busted on Thursday night. The culprit was her very own Ramblers.
“I ask God to be especially good to Loyola so that, at the end of the game, the scoreboard indicates a big ‘W’ for us. These kids play with their hearts and their heads because they love their school and because they love basketball.”
Interestingly enough, there was a time when Sister Jean was a young lady, not an old sister, and someone sent in a few pictures of a young Sister Jean into our tipbox. Wasn’t exactly sure what to expect a young Sister Jean to look like.
Not sure why anyone cares what Sister Jean used to look like, but now that she’s a full blown celebrity, why not reveal as much as we can about the Sister. Looks like Sister Jean is one of those people who have always been old, I guess when you live that long, you’re pretty much old for a majority of your life. Anways, check out the pics below.
I was praying she would look something more like this below, I guess my expectation bracket has been busted. Oh well, Ramble on!
Let’s see if Sister Jean’s special brand of scorcery can propel the Loyola Ramblers to ramble on to the Final Four
