For Vocations Awareness Week 

In honor of Vocations Awareness Week, here's a passage from Chesterton's play The Surprise (Act I, scene ii):
"I never see [nuns] pass, silent and hooded, through their quiet cloisters but I have a vision: a vast vision of Amazons, wilder than any heathen Valkyrs, riders rushing into battle; a charge of chivalry going all one way, and every rider as free as Joan of Arc; galloping, galloping to God. That is the real vision of Obedience.
