(The whole visitation and assessment nastiness rather backfired, didn't it?! It led many of us to pay attention to what we had taken for granted. And you have stepped up with wonderful media sharing: videos of talks, interviews, transcripts, articles.)
I so regret having been so blind for so long: to the grace and strength and beauty of women religious. But I am so very grateful that you walk among and with us. Many of us care about certain issues and values; you have taken your lifetime earnings and devote that money to them. In return, you choose to live simply and in poverty, quietly making a difference in helping human needs. What an excellent way to live a human life!
Blessings, blessings,upon you all.
