Sister Belinda Monahan, OSB shares her vocation as a Benedictine Sister and Archaeologist with the In The Company of Charity podcast audience produced by the Daughters of Charity of St. Vincent de Paul.
"I believe I was called to be both an archaeologist and a Sister...Archaeology is history, but it is often the history of people who don't write history...It allows me to speak for the people who don't ordinarily have a voice and it's on a different scale than speaking for the poor and disenfranchised in the world today, but I do think it is important to say that these people lived lives that are different than ours and here is how, and here is the dignity that they had, and here is why they are beloved children of God." -Sister Belinda
