Interesting day today. Met and had lunch with Robert Moynihan, who introduced me to this lady
Sr. Margarita is an American, 88 years old, and a member of the Religious Teachers Filippini, an order of active sisters founded to teach religion, which is actually, surprisingly, a rather rare charism.
And she's working to get Pius XII canonised.
You see these sisters around Rome quite a bit, with their little bonnets. But mostly they wear the modified bonnet. Not Sr. Margarita. I remember seeing her for the first time on the bus, wearing the full gear.
And this lovely bonnet with the pleated edges.
