Mother Dolores Hart visits Franciscan University

Here’s the audio MP3 of her talk on campus: https://files.me.com/keithmajor/pj6zbv.mp3

It is a story straight out of Hollywood. A beautiful young starlet walks away from a blossoming movie career to become a nun, and 50 years later she returns to the Academy Awards ceremony — as the subject of an Oscar-nominated film.

The real-life drama of Dolores Hart, known as Mother Prioress to the nuns here at the Abbey of Regina Laudis, unfolds in the HBO film “God Is the Bigger Elvis,” one of five nominees for best documentary (short subject). The 35-minute film examines Mother Dolores’ transformation from a Hollywood ingénue and the recipient of Elvis Presley’s first on-screen kiss to a cloistered Benedictine nun at the abbey, where for the past nine years she has been the prioress, the second in authority below the abbess, Mother David Serna.

    I adore Mother Dolores Hart for her brave and sincere devotion to her religeous faith. Her sacrifice for fame, fortune and Don Robinson”s love to seclusion at the Abbey of Regina Laudis. She is one in a billion!!!
