These Discalced Augustinian Sisters are sharing the joy of their vocation on YouTube and Instagram- - and one young girl already wants to join them!

They aren’t young women, but they could give lessons in the use of social media to many young people. This is the story of the Discalced Augustinian Sisters of the Valencian town of Benigànim.

These nuns—led in particular by Sr. Aurora, who entered this monastery at the age of 17 and is now 64—have achieved something impossible to imagine years ago: they are radiating the spirituality of the cloister into the homes and lives of thousands of people.
