Differences in the ways we worship — or don’t — have done much to divide us from each other over these past few…centuries. But regardless of creed, there is probably at least one thing we all can agree on: there is no tougher Catholic than a nun.
True, they’ve mellowed out a little since the golden age of Catholic schools. Even a nun knows now that if you clock a kid in the back of the head for talking in class or throw a chalkbrush at him for misspelling “acronym,” she’s going to hear about it from parents, the principal, the diocese, and possibly even the cops.
But even with the lower profile nuns have been keeping of late, we still have no intention of crossing one. (Ha! “Crossing” a nun, get it?) Considering the damage they used to do with rulers, can you imagine how much damage nuns could inflict upon you if their convents were outfitted with nunchucks? Praying would be the only way you could hope for mercy!
