EUROPE: SPAIN: 103 YEAR OLD NUN MEETS POPE
A cloistered nun, aged 103, has left the walls of her convent after 84 years to meet Pope Benedict XVI. She met the Pontiff during World Youth Day. She is the world's oldest cloistered nun. Sister Teresita, a member of the Buenafuente del Sistal Convent, lives around 60miles north of Madrid. She entered the convent on April 16, 1927, on the same day that Joesph Ratzinger - Pope Benedict XVI - was born. She took her vows at the age of 19. She said, "Who can spend 84 years in a convent without being happy? You feel happiness when you follow your vocation." (image: typically spanish)
