Before becoming Sister Nobili

Sister Anna Nobili used to lap dance in Italian nightclubs. Now she dancers for a holy audience in Vatican City. From the BBC:

Several years ago, she swapped her old life for the Church, after a visit to the shrine of St Francis in Assisi, a place of pilgrimage for millions of Catholics in Umbria.

Sister Nobili, then joined the order of nuns called the Working Lady Nuns of Nazareth House, and it is through them that she tours prisons and hospitals performing her modern Christian dance.

She says the Church is very open to what she does.

“They understand that our hearts belong to Jesus, that means our moves also show that he is alive, and that he is a God of joy, not one of sadness,” she explains.

“He is a God who dances not one who stands still.”
