"Are we prepared to promote conditions in which the living contact with God can be reestablished? For our lives today have become godless to the point of complete vacuity. God is no longer with us in the conscious sense of the word. He is denied, ignored, excluded from every claim to have a part in our daily life." - Alfred Delp, S.J.

Sr. Mary Ann Walsh



Sr. Mary Ann Walsh died yesterday.

I liked her.

NEW YORK (RNS) Sister Mary Ann Walsh, a quiet nun with a keen wit who led a very public life as a journalist and a longtime spokeswoman for the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops, died on Tuesday (April 28) after a tough battle with cancer. 
She was 67 and passed away in a hospice in Albany next to the regional convent of the religious order she entered as a 17-year-old novice in 1964. 
Walsh had moved to her native Albany from Washington last September after it was discovered that the cancer that had been in remission since 2010 had returned. - Finish reading here.

May the souls of the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace.  Amen.

  1. Isn't she one of those liberal nuns FR Z frequently called out?

    1. I think so. She always impressed me by her fidelity however - and great charity. She wasn't at all 'radical' in the sense that the Fr. Z crowd may have labeled her though. She was a good religious.

    2. Yes, she was and a good example of a faithful servant to her Lord and the Church He founded.

      May heaven be hers.
