Oh God, can I pay them to let me join? Are there any cute priests? What broadband connection does the Church have? Is God on the other end of it? Would a habit suit me? What colour is it?
So many questions, where do I sign?
Reality TV never got more meaningful.
Imagine a world offering peace and tranquillity, and you’re there to contemplate the deeper side of life….no blaring phones, no family dramas, no frustrating work… just you and your desire to discover life’s meaning.
Sounds too good to be true? Welcome to The Abbey.
ABC TV is looking for five women for a new 3 part series. Take up the challenge to live the life of a contemplative nun for 33 days and nights – one day for every year of Christ’s life.
You will leave behind the hurly-burly of modern life to embark upon a search for meaning, spirituality and self behind the walls of an enclosed order.
Immerse yourself in the world of The Abbey and live by The Rule of Silence and Obedience. Take a leap of faith and discover things about yourself and life that you never knew. Learn what the spirit of community living is all about as you share the nuns daily routine of prayer, farm work, craft and domestic tasks. Throughout the challenge of living in this other world, you will have a Sister-mentor to listen, support and guide you.
Will this life hold any relevance to you as a contemporary Australian woman? Will spiritual contemplation and prayer have the power to transform your life or will you find it too hard a cross to bear?

What on earth is Auntie up to? You, gentle reader, know my opinion of reality TV shows. I mean, I like totally get them, but they still leave me unmoved. I never found the cringe factor particularly entertaining. But just how much fun will it be to watch someone meditating? How interesting are the dynamics when they undertake a vow of silence? Won’t the Diary Room (a la Big Brother) be a little.. well… quiet? Still, better than shenanigans in the jacuzzi… I guess.
