Season 6 Episode 601
Aired on 03/01/2015 | CC tv-14
Sister Joan Chittister, who has been a Roman Catholic nun for 62 years, believes the soul you're born with isn't the soul you have later in life. "It's layers of consciousness. It's layers of awareness. And so the more life that you let in, the more life you will have. And then your own soul does grow," she says. "[Antoine de Saint-Exupéry] says someplace something like this. He says, 'To live is to be slowly born.'"

In the video above, Sister Joan reflects on the evolution of a soul.
