During my recent visit to St. Louis I stayed with the Loretto Sisters in Webster Groves. Their Sr. Maragaret was the blood sister of our Fr. John, and I used to stay with them during taping sessions for Breaking Bread. The kitchen manager of their food service asked for a bread lesson, so we assembled to make a basic roll dough and to shape it in various ways. As you can see, her slab braids turned out especially nice. Surprisingly, none of the sisters were interested in getting their hands in the dough--I'll have to work on that!
