Sr. Macrina Wiederkehr, OSB

Sr. Macrina Wiederkehr, OSB

Macrina Wiederkehr, OSB is well known for her creative writing and retreat ministry. Her deep country roots from her childhood in Arkansas connect her to the earth. Here is where she first entered into the flow of dawn and dusk, day and night, prayer and work. The forest was the first cathedral where she found God. The prayer-life she discovered in the forest, gardens and vineyards magically led her to her present monastery where she lives with her Sisters in community, in Fort Smith Arkansas. As a Benedictine sister she is passionate about sharing her monastic spirituality with others.
