This is Mother Leonor, founder of the Saint Dominic Sisters Order. She is 87 years old, too sharp (she holds 4 doctorates, mainly in theology), and agile for any age (she walks a few rocky miles daily to church everyday from her convent in the hills of Mexico City).

My Gf had warned me to behave around Mother Leonor. She is the founder of an entire church order and you don't trifle with such a figure, with such education and experience. Sure enough, I found this sweet lady to be humble, open, honest, friendly and funny. While she was attending to important church matters with the community here in El Paso, she saw me running around the convent grounds chasing rabbits and the other wildlife looking for shots. The twinkle in her eye said she would rather be on the chase with me. Being an outsider to the Catholic world of nuns, I have yet to find one that I don't get along with or who is as severe as the stereotypes out there. Anytime my girlfriend says there is a function or something at the convent, I'm there!
