Sister Paola D'Auria’s vocational story is stormy, but today she’s famous across Italy for her charitable work.
Sister Paola D’Auria’s vocational story is stormy, to say the least, including the intervention of the police. Today, she’s famous across Italy both for her charitable work and for appearing as a regular on a TV sports entertainment show for 12 years, expressing her enthusiastic support of a Roman soccer club, Lazio. The latter could seem out of place to some people, but it has helped give her a platform to speak about the former.
Sr. Paola’s “origin story”
On an Italian TV show called “Today is another day” (“Oggi è un altro giorno”), Sr. Paola recently retraced the stages of her life that led her to become a religious. Il Sussidiario shared some of her words on that occasion.
