There’s a secret that no one tells you about when it comes to wearing a religious habit. The POCKETS!
While women’s pants pockets are basically nonexistent, religious habits are making up for pocket inequality. But it’s not all sunshine. Sometimes all those pockets can get downright uncomfortable. In fact, some sisters have so many pockets, they accidentally sit on them.
Here are just a few things that monks, brothers, sisters, and nuns can fit into their habit pockets:
1. Coffee mugs
3. Large cookie sheets
4. Full sized Bibles
We’re not saying you should let the size of those pockets influence your vocational discernment. But if you’re frustrated with the lack of pockets in your clothing, a religious habit may be just the answer you’re looking for!
