The Two Women

One day, two women were driving down a road. They got a certain feeling as they came upon a driveway. As they passed the driveway, it left them. They decided to drive back and see if this feeling would return. It did. It was the “funniest thing,” they later said. They kept driving back and forth, and the feeling kept coming upon them and then leaving, as they got to and then passed by the driveway. They did this for an hour. The pattern repeated each time they arrived at and then drove away from the driveway.

Finally, their curiosity compelled them to inquire. They drove down the driveway, entered the establishment located there and asked, “what kind of place is this.”

They were informed that it was a monastery, the home of the Poor Clare Nuns of Perpetual Adoration and the studios of EWTN, the Eternal Word Television Network in the suburbs of Birmingham, Alabama. The nuns have a chapel on the site, in which the Eucharist exposed for continual adoration.

The two visitors were shown into the chapel were told that Jesus was there. They asked, where?” They were directed to the monstrance. The two women knelt down, explaining that, “we feel the same Presence.”
