"O light of revelation when dawn shows its face, and when the shades of twilight enfold me, may I receive the peace that comes from being in communion with you. You are a window to the eternal, hold me in your view. Don't let me ever out of your sight. Death will hold no terror for me, sheltered under your wings. May I rest in peace in life and in death." ~ The Flowing Grace of Now, by Sister Macrina Wiederkehr
We, the Sisters of St. Scholastica Monastery, thank you for loving our Sister Macrina in this life. We are grateful for the gift of her and all the ways she touched others with the delight of God's world and words.
Know we are with you always. Our prayers go with you, and we are comforted by yours for us, and especially for Sister Macrina.
Remember this phrase from the heart of her pen, 'My God, help me believe the truth about myself no matter how beautiful it is.'
You have brought beauty to her and us here at St. Scholastica Monastery.
Let us walk her into the season of God's heart, where a tree full of Angels embrace her in sacred arrival. Our love and sympathy go to the family of Sister Macrina and all those who knew her.
The Mass for Christian Burial for Sister Macrina will be held at a later date after the restrictions mandated due to the COVID-19 virus have been lifted. Please remember Sister Macrina in your prayers.
Sister Kimberly R Prohaska, OSB
