Nun Rocks It On Italy's 'The Voice' Singing Competition And No One Can Believe It: Sister Cristina Scuccia Wows
Sister sister! You've never seen a nun shut it down like this one. The judges of singing competition "The Voice of Italy" couldn't believe their ears when they heard Sister Cristina Scuccia belting out Alicia Keys' "No One," but they were in for a greater shock when they saw what Scuccia looked like.
Judges begin the show with their backs to the stage, and if they like what they hear they can swivel their chairs around-- but none of them were prepared for the sight of 25-year-old Scuccia, a member of the Ursuline Sisters of the Holy Family, delivering a jaw-droppingly good performance in her black habit and silver cross. As the crowd cheered, her fellow sisters jumped up and down in delight.

A Process Commentary: God is Novelty, Too.
Jesus put it well: Humans cannot live by bread alone. We need rhythm, contrast, humor, novelty, adventure, and surprise. We also need transgression: that is, the transgressing of ordinary expectations and conventional wisdom. The taste of new wine cannot be contained in old wineskins. God comes to us in novelty, especially when it is in the service of harmony and intensity, love and vitality, compassion and spontaneity, otherwise called the fullness of life.
Sister Cristina Scuccia 25 years old, is Sicilian but lives in Milan and is an Orsolina nun of the Holy Family. Her childhood dream was to become a singer, in 2008 the Orsolina Sisters organize a music hall in which she finds herself by chance. A non-believer, and against the Church ... she instead finds Love. Insecure in life, she is convinced by her Mother Superiors in participating to The Voice of Italy ... this is now her mission!
