What God gets out of strippers

In my quest for my daily smarticle, I found this story about the stripping nun. No joke!

Well, maybe a little bit of a joke... Anna Nubili of Italy used to be a stripper in Milan but after 20 years of dancing, she decided to become a nun. Talk about a change of heart! After taking a trip to the shrine of St. Francis of Assisi, she "saw something fluorescent within the clouds, a cascade of colour and felt the presence of God, the Creator." After returning back to Milan, Sister Anna told her boss at the stripclub that she had "found a new clean treasure and it was God."

Now, Sister Anna has joined the order of the Sister Workers of the Holy House of Nazareth, and will be performing in a dance group in the Jarusalem Basilica in Rome for an archbishop.

All this just goes to show-- it's never too late for a career change, and you really can do whatever you set your mind to! From a stripper to a nun.... I mean WOW!
