Why ‘Nuns React’??

Why are religious sisters spending time making videos about movies and social media? Shouldn’t we just be in chapel?

Yes. But ours is an apostolic community, and we’re called to evangelize. Even more, we’re a Pauline community, which means media. Confused? Watch to learn more about how Catholic sisters came to be involved in media, and what the Church has taught in the past several decades about cinema, storytelling, and more. J.R.R. Tolkien, Pope Pius XII, Pope Benedict XVI all weigh in on the question of Why Nuns React?
