Sister Mary Aloysius Kiernan

Dear friends,

On the night 13/14th of January 2013 Sister Aloysius went to be with her Lord. She entered painlessly in that night (she confidently returned my ‘good night’ wish on the phone before she went to bed) to wake up in a glorious, never-ending morning.

As we all know, ‘sister’ –  that’s how everybody called her around here – won the respect of the grown-up and the love of the children. But not any children, those who were passed by almost everybody else’s love. The abandoned and the forgotten. So many of them breathed easier because she lived.

Now the time has come for her to rest.

May she rest in peace!

The love she earned in our hearts will never die.
