LA Nuns Pray for Pumpkin Bread

Love this story from NPR's All Things Considered. Favorite quote:

Sister Mary Raphael, 65, has lived here since she was 18. She's one of the few nuns who leaves the walled confines, but even then only for necessities. She's not impressed by what she sees in the outside world.

"We don't go around with the iPods, the music, we don't go around with the cell phone on constantly," she says. "I've seen it when I go out shopping. They're constantly on their phone. I want to say, 'Hello? Did you say hello to God today? Did you call God?'"
