I don't know whyyou assume that they are not allowed to look at their own bodies--however, some of the more obsessive types would put on a light-weight shift and get into the bath while wearing that. At any event, so the novels tell us.

@Setanta,
well it was just a discussion with a friend because they have to dress under a robe, as its a sin to look at there bodies there not allowed mirrors in the convents either, and i said they must be allowed to have a bath without a robe on,

Here's a few words it might help you to master: their, which is the third person plural possessive, and they're, which is a contraction of they are. There is an adverb of position.

You didn't answer my question--upon what basis do you allege that nuns are not to look at their own bodies? What makes you think it's a sin?

Seem is the operative word . . . in fact, it doesn't upset me at all, i was just curious to know why you had said it. I suspect that any such stricture is the product of custom rather than regulation.

@lynette1378,
Most of the time people see agression where there is none..

But why would you think the internet was friendly, more than the real world?

@lynette1378,
There is no anger here--except perhaps your own. You're projecting.

You're not the only person here who has made such an allegation . . . that doesn't make it true, however. Try to distinguish between your emotion and reality, it will help you to get on in life.

You know, as your profile shows you as only having joined today, your comment about whether or not others find me to be angry strongly suggests that you're registered here under another name. 'Fess up, what was your user name before?

@lynette1378,
He wasn't horrible or aggressive - I suggest you are too sensitive.

He was explaining the use and spelling of the three: their, they're, and there, which you appear to use indiscriminately, and that was more helpful than aggressive. Can't you take constructive criticism?

Edit: And everybody knows nuns don't bathe very often. They run around in habits in order to hide the dirt and camouflage the smell. After a month or so, they derobe and shower in the dark. I thought everybody knew this.

@Mame,
Now I feel impelled to research bathing issues and nuns!

Grrrrrrrr.....

I have been told the pope may not view the popely dangly bits when bathing



















Because








He's not supposed to look down on the unemployed













Though I believe, at least supposedly historically, their unemployment was more to be seen in the breach than the in the observance

This might have been true in the past, re some contempletive orders of nuns in the strictest of times. But even in the middle ages, I doubt it was a consistently held viewpoint in nunneries. As for today, some huge proportion of nuns wear ordinary clothes and I assume they are all too busy helping teach, feed the poor, et cetera, to not look at themselves ever.

By the way, I'm probably your grandmother's age or older. Some of her thinking probably came from the book, The Nun's Story, or the movie made about the book, starring Audrey Hepburn.

@lynette1378,
No, they do not have to bathe. They are so pure of spirit and body that no germ could ever live on or in them.

Amen.
