Sister Bernadette, nun: 'I am the youngest sister in this cloister. I never knew the white nuns. Nor any white fathers either, on the other side of this building. There are only two brothers in the monastery there. Here, with us women, there is more vocation. We get up early in the morning for first prayers. We then have to go to the church with our torches. We have no electricity here, only a generator, and we try to be as economic as possible about using it.'.
