RICH AND FAMOUS WHO LEAVE IT ALL TO ENTER CONVENT

    WASHINGTON, D.C., MAR (ZENIT.org).- American gossip columns are reporting the almost unbelievable phenomenon of well-known, high society women who are abandoning it all, to enter the austere life of a convent.

    In its latest issue, "Talk" Magazine dedicates six pages to the phenomenon. The article, entitled "Italy's La Dolce Vita Nuns," recounts the stories of the daughters of Roberto Gucci, of the Marchionesses Rossi di Montelera, and of Della Chiesa, who is the sister of Princess Barberini.

    Last year, the vocation to the consecrated life by prominent persons, was the subject of a long interview with a famous fashion model. The interview was published by the largest Italian publishing house, Mondadori.

    The book published by Mondadori, entitled "I Chose God," was edited by journalist Orazio La Rocca, and recounts the story of Antonella Moccia, who went from a high fashion house to the simplicity of convent life. ZE00031403
