Three Nuns Praying For The White Sox Team

Three nuns from Chicago are praying for the White Sox to win the World Series. CBS Chicago reported on the 21st:

It’s not what you would expect to find in a convent, but then again, who can resist a World Series that hasn’t come to town in 46 years?

Everyone wants a ticket to the World Series, and Sister Rita Marie with the Sisters of St. Casimir is actually going to Game 1 tomorrow.

“Never in my wildest dreams did I think I would be there tomorrow night!” she said.

It’s all thanks to a benefactor from Philadelphia where the good sister was born.

“I'm not from Chicago, but I've been a Sox fan for 50 years,” she said.

It's not the first time the sisters are going to a White Sox game, but they say it's a miracle that they actually got tickets for the World Series. The next miracle, they say, will happen at the end of October and true White Sox fans know exactly what they're talking about.


So far, the White Sox are ahead of the Astros 2-0. That's not good for Astros fans. But, things could change when the games are played in Houston. We'll see.

UPDATE 26/10/2005
The Astros has a nun praying for them. The Associated Press reports:

HOUSTON - Sister Damian Kuhn can be found in Section 116, row 35, seat 31 when the Houston Astros play in Minute Maid Park.

"I'm sitting in what I call my Seventh Heaven," she said Tuesday. "It could not be any better."

A little divine intervention sought by one of their most devout fans certainly couldn't hurt the team, who were in an 0-2 deficit going into Tuesday night's World Series game against Chicago.

"A lot of people are praying on both sides," noted Sister Damian, an 85-year-old Catholic nun who lives across the street from the ball park and faithfully attends Astros games. Her religious order, the Sisters of the Incarnate Word and Blessed Sacrament, has operated a school at the site since 1873. Three-hundred girls now attend high school there. "I'm just thanking God I'm part of this."

Sister Damian, as she is known, is a celebrity of sorts at both the school and the ball park, where Astros owner Drayton McLane for several years now has provided her a pair of tickets.


Three nuns [White Sox fans] to one nun [Astros fan]. I think the Astros need more prayers as they lost their third game last night. It doesn't look good for the Astros.

UPDATE 10/27/2005
As I predicted, when you have three nuns praying for your team to win, then it'll most likely win. The White Sox won The World Series for the first time in 88 years. Congratulations to the White Sox fans.
