Perhaps the quality which most endeared Sister Mary Sheila to her sisters was her ability “to listen.” She gave to each sister her full attention and wise advice. Each came away feeling supported and loved, knowing that whatever they had shared would be held in confidence. Sister Mary Sheila was truly a “Wisdom Woman.”
The phrase “Woman of Prayer” is an apt description of Sister Mary Therese. When an opportunity to share in “Lectio Divina” was offered through Kindred Hearts Ministries, Sister was among the first to join. For her, it was “another opportunity to pray.” As a member of the province’s Apostolate of Prayer, she faithfully spent many hours each day praying for the intentions entrusted to her.
