Today we visited Nazareth, the home-town of Jesus.  It is probably that Jesus lived in this town for at least 25 years; his boyhood and teenage years, as well as his life as a young adult – until he was 30 and began his public ministry.

A few photos of our group from around Nazareth:

Then we discussed what the collective noun for nuns is. One of our sisters suggested ‘a swarm of nuns’.  Your own suggestions are welcome!
