#suorcristina hopes to get a call from #popefrancis next after her show stopping performance on The Voice of Italy.
All four judges turned their chairs as 25 year old Ursuline Sisters of the Holy Family, Suor Cristina belted out Alicia Keys’ “No One,” on The Voice of Italy singing competition show.

As Catholic News Agency reports: “A native of Sicily, Sr. Cristina arrived at the show accompanied by four sisters from her community, as well as her parents.
The four judges of the popular TV program are the Italian singers Raffaella Carra, J-Ax, Noemi, and Piero Pelu. After her performance, Carra asked Sr. Cristina if she is really a nun, and why she chose to compete on the show.
“Yes, I am truly, truly a sister,” she replied.

“I came here because I have a gift and I want to share that gift. I am here to evangelize.”

The final remarks of the article include Cardinal Gianfranco Ravasi, president of the Pontifical Council for Culture’s stamp of approval using the trending hashtag #suorcristina he tweeted: “Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others (1 Peter 4:10)”.
