I saw this article on FB and got a kick out of it. I remember the sisters could get me to do anything with a firm voice that never got too loud
A would-be thief proved no match for a small nun with a commanding voice. PITTSBURGH (May 28, 2010)--A thief in Pittsburgh turned out to be no match for a little nun with a commanding voice.
Sister Lynn Rettinger used the tone of voice that’s kept students in line for the nearly 50 years she’s taught in Catholic schools when a man reached into an open car window and stole a wallet Tuesday.
The 5-foot-3 principal of Sacred Heart Elementary School went outside and firmly told the man: "You need to give me what you have."
The thief turned over the wallet, apologized and walked away.
Rettinger said she merely talked to him as she would to students when she knows they have something they shouldn't.
Police are still looking for the man.

Well, my only experience with nuns was when I was in a catholic pre-school. What I remember most (even after 42 years have past) was that they were vicious. They certainly had no problem with corporal punishment. Come to think of it, I can't remember ever seeing them smile. I'm not sure what you mean by "the voice" but these nuns were french and the Quebecois french is not a pleasant sounding language.
