Pumpkin Bread

For the past 30 years, Mother Antonia Brenner has lived in a pink, unlocked, 10 x 10 cell at La Mesa Penitentiary in Tijuana, Mexico ministering to the inmates.  Mother Antonia, "Prison Angel," raised seven children in Beverly Hills, California, before becoming a nun at age 50.  Mother Antonia became lost one day and inadvertently wound up at the prison.  Upon seeing the conditions, she vowed to come back - hence her ministry.  "In 30 years there, I haven't met anyone that wasn't worth everything I could give to them, even my life.  I see the image and likeness of God in each and every one of them."

Europe has the largest number of women's contemplative convents with 2,252.  America has 904, Asia has 227, Africa has 123, and Oceania has 23.

Globally, there are 3,529 cloistered convents with 47,626 nuns and 8,100 novices and postulants.

Delores Hart, film actress who appeared in Elvis' 1957 film Loving You, became a nun.
