The Miss Sister Pageant: surprisingly not for drag queens

A priest in Rome is organizing a beauty contest for nuns. 
"We are not going to parade nuns in bathing suits." he says.   He points out that physical beauty is a gift from God, and is setting up a blog to accept submissions.  Applicants are asked to include some information about themselves and their devotion.  I am imagining this done Playboy-centerfold style:

Meet our Sister September, Mary Catherine.  She enjoys contemplating the sacrifices made by the son of our Lord while washing her car in cut-offs and a cropped habit.  Sudsy!

I would love for the writer of Beauty Tips for Ministers to weigh in on this one, but she says she's off until September 1st.
