Sister Cristina is back again

 ...this time playing Sister Mary Robert 
in 'Sister Act'


“Pope Francis? I think he would support me, because the church must reduce its distance from the people. God bless this musical!”
Suor Cristina quote from ANSA, Suor Cristina debutta nel musical



 Who is the real nun?

 Nothing like a nun starring in a musical which makes a mockery out of religious.


What's the play about?

Sister Act was written by two Talmudic Jews, Cheri Steinkellner & Bill Steinkellner, a husband and wife writing team.  Deloris (aka Sister Mary Clarence) the protagonist is a black woman on the run from her boyfriend who happens to be a murderer, involved in organized crime, and inconveniently married.  Deloris introduces the nuns to the ways of the world and its vices.  The nuns end up saving Deloris from her murderous boyfriend but sadly don't save Deloris' soul as they never bother instructing her in the faith.  Not only does it make a mockery of the Catholic faith, it concludes with Deloris and the Mother Superior making a truce with the declaration that they aren't so different after all. 

 Is that funny Cristina?  Or is it 'speak no evil'?

 Using the confessional as a prop. 


“Theater is a way to meet others and leave my message of love.”
 Suor Cristina quote from ANSA, Suor Cristina debutta nel musical


Sister Cristina loves sacrilegious musicals!

See a Novus Ordo nun act!



 What else has Cristina been up to?

Suor Cristina is also going to have a concert in Valletta, Malta in December.
'Natale con Suor Cristina' going by the billboard image is all about Cristina!

 Shooting more music videos to spread her message.

  1. Perhaps Sister Cristina should ask her "elder brothers and sisters in the faith" what they think of her performance:

    "After giving it some thought, I realized it wasn’t the TV lover or even the music lover in me that drove my obsessive replaying of this video. It was the Jew — or, more specifically, the formerly Orthodox Jewish woman — that couldn’t resist its charm.

    Strange as it may sound, watching 25-year-old Sister Cristina Scuccia belt it out on stage while a cluster of habit-clad nuns cheered her on from the sidelines, I couldn’t help but do a simple thought experiment:

    What if this were an ultra-Orthodox Jewish woman instead? Would she dare to sing like that in front of a mixed audience of men and women, knowing that her performance — her intimate voice — would be broadcast to millions more around the world?
    And would her ultra-Orthodox female friends stand there, cheering her on?

    No way, I thought. Not in a million years.

    The reason why can be explained in two words: Kol Isha.

    Literally translated as “woman’s voice,” Kol Isha refers to the Jewish rabbinic law that forbids men to listen to a woman’s singing voice for fear that it will result in sexual temptation.

    In practice, this law means that women in the Orthodox Jewish world are frequently barred from singing in public — especially in contemporary Israel, where rabbis have gone so far as to say that male soldiers should sooner choose death than stay at an army event that includes women’s singing.

  2. Kol Isha. Very interesting, Anonymous. I guess our voices can be sirens luring men to their death.
