In Missouri, a group of nuns called the Benedictines of Mary, Queen of the Apostles, recorded an album that topped Billboard's traditional classical charts for weeks over the summer when it was first released...and they couldn't care less.

"These CDs are absolutely non-essential to our life, our life of prayer,” Mother Cecilia, the prioress, said. “If we hadn’t recorded, or if we don’t record again, it really wouldn’t have any bearing, any effect on our life.”

The album, "Angels and Saints at Epheseus," is a best-seller.

Guest

  • Mother Cecilia, prioress of the Benedictines of Mary, Queen of the Apostles.
