Brides of Christ 1932-1941

    Brides of Christ
    Holy Cross Convent
    1932 – 1941

    These were biblical ‘Valiant Women’
    (Proverbs 31:10)

    They were holy, prayerful, hard working, caring, happy and human.

    Memories from a Holy Cross Convent Boarder

    M. Columba – artistic and always ready with a tale of the past.

    Sister Gertrude – her dark glasses always prevented boarders from knowing (for sure) if at study time they were being observed.

    Sister Gerard – her discipline

    Sister Joan – at the time we did not realise what a gentle lady she really was. Great exam results despite the unmusical efforts of her music theory class. She was quick tempered; flying music books were not uncommon.

    M. di Pazzi – music, music, music… She could play anything put before her.

    Sister Teresa – never gave up the old ‘habit’ and never gave up trying to turn Holy Cross girls into ladies.

    M. Ursula – a gentle lady but commanding of respect.

    Sister Geraldine – another great teacher but easily upset by mischievous boarders, especially when they carried on with the male botany students.

    Sister Carmel – returned to us as a sister and she enriched our late night recreation dancing with her music.

    M. Lawrence – very much the Reverend Mother… her demeanour had most of the students in awe but young Jimmy with a smart remark could put a smile on her face.

    M. Stanislaus – The Reverend Mother… a remote figure of authority to young boarders whose misdemeanours were not serious enough to be brought before her.

    M. General Columba – a VIP. A regular visitor to our Holy Cross Convent, students had mixed feelings about a private interview as we knew she was on the lookout for ‘vocations’.

    Sister Anthony – talking to her chooks…and herself.

    Sister Carthage – cheerfully busy in the dormitories

    Sister Helena – dispensing glasses of warm ‘salts’ (with a slice of apple to kill the taste), and hot sudsy water for chilblained feet.

    Sister Vincent – bent praying in the chapel.

    Sister Monica – cream cloaks of nuns celebrating her funeral

    M. Gertrude – being quiet in the corridor outside her sick room

    M. Margaret – trying to calm boarders at late night study when the wind moaned through the garden trees.

    Sister Patrick – taking mending sessions and trying to locate and hush the whistling boarders…so unladylike!

    Sister Angela – sweet and gentle; no match for naughty girls. Both Sisters Angela and Patrick had beautiful Irish accents of the ‘real’ sisters.

    Sister Fabian – friendly and full of fun! Remember her reading ‘Wind in the Willows’ to boarders under the trees by the tennis courts.

    Sister Christopher – turning her famous steely stare on the boarder who, when leaving the study room, unthinkingly switched off the light…and…had to return to switch it on again!

    M. Loyola – vigorous teaching methods, especially with French: “You should do your homework – so you ought!” as she thumped on the desk with her ruler, her book or her black belt.

    M. Aloysius – a wonderful teacher and respected reverend mother. Trying to suppress laughter as she asked a boarder in disgrace what she found to write about a certain day boy. She had evidence of his literary skills (much to his Aunty Loyola’s anger!)

    Charmingly Pragmatic Prince Seeks Louboutin

    Contact Us,Moshe Billet found a red bottoms black leather peep toe Christian Louboutin pump at 96th Street and Broadway on June 23. Knowing Louboutins are expensive ($600 $800) and that someone was probably upset to have lost it, he posted an ad on Craigslist and messages on Facebook and Twitter, as well as “found” fliers in the area. Gentlemanly, no? So gentlemanly, in fact, as to be kind of, well, unusual. We wanted to know more about replica louboutin what makes this sort of guy tick, so we met up with him at Starbucks for details.

    Moshe, when you first found red bottom pumps the shoe, how did you know it was a louboutin replica Louboutin?

    The red bottom.

    Well, I mean, I once dated a girl who said, “I only wear red bottomed shoes.” christian louboutin replica We only went on one date. This is a recognizable brand. You know it when you see it. It’s a status symbol, you know; actresses wear these things on the red carpet. That’s why they can charge $800 a shoe.

    When you picked it up, did you ever think it would get this much attention?

    No, and replica christian louboutin it took several days for it to even get the attention. I had only gotten two e mails from my signs: one, someone saying, “God bless you,” or, sorry, it was “Jesus bless you,” and the other one was this blogger who was totally skeptical about it like, “Is this some kind of viral marketing campaign or is this real?” That’s how it all started.

    If someone responds to your ad and sounds red bottom heels like she’s telling the truth, how will you prove it’s her shoe?

    I’m going to make her produce the other one, like the other glass slipper type of thing. I don’t think I’m actually going to get down on one knee and put in on her the other shoe will be enough for me. But I just want to return something valuable. I once left this suit on the Long Island Rail Road, a Brooks Brothers suit. You know what, it ended red bottom shoes up in the lost and found at Penn Station, and I got it back. It’s a nice New York story, and this could be a nice New York story, too.Articles Connexes:

    Welcome to the University of Exeter Political Theory reading group blog February 13th sees Jose Ruiz Vicioso present David Hume the rise and progress of the Arts and Sciences the text here: OF THE RISE AND PROGRESS OF THE ARTS AND SCIENCES Writing in mid 18th Century, Hume addresses in this authentic warren moon womens jersey Essay the issue of the rise and progress of the arts and sciences. ‘Why a nation is more polite and learned, in a particular time, than its neighbours?’ he asks.
