Episode Summary

Sister Paul is completely happy in her religious life at the convent of Santo Spirito so she is not the only one who is surprised and stunned when she runs into an old friend, Jack Delahunty, who has become a rather outspoken young priest.

Due to Jack's somewhat radical beliefs, he leaves the priesthood and Sister Paul, the former Veronica Tierney, finds that she has fallen in love with him and so, decides to abandon her religious life to be with him. The problem for Veronica is that she has been incredibly sheltered at the convent and is not prepared for the realities of the outside world. She finds teaching in a Catholic boy's school a very hard task indeed and has trouble dealing with Jack constantly 'preaching' about what is wrong with the church and those who are in positions of power within it.

Ultimately, although she still loves Jack, Veronica finds it very difficult to adjust to her new life and decides to return to Santo Spirito where most, at least, with the possible exception of Sister Agnes and a couple of the older nuns, welcome her back with open arms. Once again, she is content and knows she will be happy spending the rest of her life serving God.moreless
