A Life for God

This video was originally produced in 2003
by the Poor Clare Nuns at the Belleville, Illinois monastery.

It was created as a means of letting people know what the Poor Clares do all day
as well as explain their spiritual life. The original VHS video is twenty minutes in length.
In order to make the video workable

for the web, it was divided into four different parts between four to six minutes each.
Approximate loading times will vary for each section depending upon your internet connection.

We have found that
RealPlayer has allowed the
video sections to load and 
play faster and with greater
quality than many of the other
