Catholic Hilt

The holidays are a magical time when we come together with family, have a falling out, and eventually throw eggnog in the face of the uncle of our choosing. Every person has their Christmas tradition, and for actress Patti Hannon, that tradition is to portray a ruler-liberal, socially-conservative Catholic nun. The sassy lady in white and black might as well be a lady in police blue.

In Sister’s Christmas Catechism: The Mystery of the Magi’s Gold, she and her class of equally terrified and captivated students are out to solve the greatest Christmas ruse to ever happen: Just who took the gold gift the Three Wise Men gave the infant Christ at birth? As The Bible indicates, Jesus Christ may not have been a materialistic man, but it’s just the principle of the thing. Who takes gold from an infant? It’s a whodunit tale of lies, deceit, and those stiff, dry communion wafers.
