The first episode of 'The Convent'
which follows four English women trying to live with the Poor Clares in their community in Arundel has just been aired on BBC 2 tonight. It was an excellent introduction to contemplative religious life and I was very moved by the women's stories and experiences. We're really looking forward to the next episode and the series promises to be as good as, if not better, than 'The Monastery
Thanks to the BBC, one can now view the entire episode online
. If you missed the program, do visit the site
and watch it and share it with others
! It's well worth the effort! Sadly, I'm told that one can view the program online from outside the UK, so those who live elsewhere have to wait for it to air!
