Of Mary Queen of Peace

As you may have read on our website, our Sr. Kate Disbrow died last Thursday. She had been failing for quite a bit of time. She'd bounce back and they have a downturn, bounce back, have a bad spell over and over. Because of the COVID-19 pandemic we couldn't have a Mass of Christian Burial so we fashioned our own service, a kind of combination of our Memory Service rituals with some of the ones that follow a funeral service. It was a beautiful experience, with many of our sisters who hadn't been able to come to the Mount for two months present at last.

We will have a Memorial Mass as soon as our diocese gets the OK to celebrate Masses for more than 10 people. When will that be?!

Meanwhile we are working hard to make our own prayer and liturgies special and memorable in themselves. Kate will go down in community lore as the sister who died during the coronavirus of 2020!

In her memory I share one of my all-time favorite spring photos: the irises in front of the Benetwood Apartments out building. Beautiful, if I may say so myself.

Blessing on all of you....stay well and, as our Sr. Kate was memorialized, be kind to all.

Oh, that's her title...a beautiful one, isn't it?
