Police: Woman studying to become a nun gave birth, asphyxiated newborn child - Washington Times:

Agnes of God in real life, again.

I liked the film a lot and even used it in psych classes. Meg Tilley's character was just kinda nuts, and Jane Fonda unfortunately played the shrink. Though she played it well. And that French Canadian Catholicism is something I got a taste of in my OP years. The real reason I liked it was Ann Bancroft. A gutsy broad, even as a nun.

It does bear witness to how swift and unexpected some cultural changes can be. Quebec was for centuries one of the most staunchly Catholic places on earth. In the historical equivalent of blinking eye, it became just as staunchly secularist.
