La lumière au bout du tunnel!

We all know about the Daughters of Charity's infamous, beautiful habit. Especially on St. Catherine Labouré. I was browsing the website of the Daughters of Charity in France. I see the light at the end of the tunnel. They are wearing a habit. Now, it's not the one with the cornette, but it is a "modified" one. A blue suit with a veil. Most of the sisters of the website are wearing one. Now, could this mean a gradual return to the traditional habit? The cornette? I hope so!

The nuns here are not French but Filipino nuns. They're habits were so useful during the 1986 Revolution when the Filipino Catholic Church threw their support to the rebels fighting the Marcos government. These habited nuns were one of the religious orders who took to the streets and led the people of God against the tyrant.
