"From my personal series Radical Love, 21-year-old Lauren Franko was in her college dorm room when she heard God propose to her via a song on YouTube. Accepting the proposal, she has decided to live her life as a cloistered nun. I first met Sister Lauren in early 2008, three weeks after she entered the cloistered Monastery of Our Lady of the Rosary, in Summit, New Jersey. I've been photographing her journey, periodically, since then. She has now spent the past five years leading a hidden life of prayer and ritual, shielded from the outside world in order to focus on the spiritual realm. Here, she receives the veil in her 'Clothing Ceremony', her official engagement to God. She talks with other nuns during their half-hour recreation period. She rehearses prostrating in preparation for her 'First Profession,' one of two ritual ceremonies that will seal her marriage to God."
