Two nuns seem to echo each other, so I'll use the quote just from the first one:According to Sister Lissy, the six-square-meter room appears simple but praying there is tough. Initially, the idea seemed quite outlandish, she recalled, and "I used to laugh seeing me in the mirror." But after a week or so, "I realized God is within me, not in a church. I also realized I was confronting myself and this helped me behave better with others."She also discovered "more meaning" in praying before the mirror than meditating before the tabernacle or in a church. "God is merciful, beautiful, kind and compassionate, and so am I, because God is within me," she added.MORE MEANING than praying before GOD??!!?? God is not in the church? Excuse me, sister, but I hope this was taken completely out of context. Jesus is present in the church in a way He is only present in you immediately after Holy Communion: physically.What a shame. Praying before yourself. And the "I am God" in sanskrit is really horrible. Makes my skin crawl.
Icky. The first thing that came to my mind as I read the article was that Blessed Teresa of Calcutta spent an hour a day in front of the Eucharist, and she had her sisters do the same. This is shameful.
