The powerful witness of pure joy
Driving into the property on a long and winding road, I was struck by how the buildings were tucked away in a rather secluded wooded area.  I was greeted by several Sisters as they led me and my priest secretary, Father Michael Wallack, into the main red-brick building to meet Mother Agnes Mary.  I had met her many times over the years and felt very warmly welcomed by her and her assistant.  We went into the refectory (dining room) for a cup of coffee and some conversation about mutual friends, past assignments and our own vocation stories.  It was a delightful chat.
