Sister Carmel is no longer required to wear a habit, but since her return to the convent in the outback city of Whyalla, her new habit, is arguably just as profound. What is it that makes a woman give her life to religion and God? Is she really a Good Samaritan? A Nun’s New Habit provides valuable lessons in religious tolerance and compassion. It flies in the face of the fundamentalism and hatred that so dominates public discussion at this time and humanises the refugee and highlight tolerance in our society.
