In 1974, when I was in Haiti, I had quite a surprise when I heard the Superior General, Sr. Monique Préfontaine, declare that our community had become international.

I was born in a large family of twelve, five boys and seven girls; I am the tenth. After my birth my mother paralysed and was treated with Chinese medicine. Consequently, I was absorbing that medication; due to lack of nourishment, my immune system was weak.

Autumn 2018 Magazine

Entirely human

The theme of this issue, MEMORY LINKS, led me to reflect upon the proper vocation of each human being. True, memory is important because it helps us remember persons we once knew, or events that took place; it helps us to study, to foresee, to consider.
