A dear friend of ours died last week at her monastery in Mexico. Benedictine Sister Josephine was the Prioress for many years, until her death, at “Monasterio San Benito,” Rio Bamba, Mexico City, near the Basilica of Our Lady of Guadalupe.
Over the past many decades, Sister Josephine and her community have cordially welcomed our monks coming to visit or returning from visits to our two monasteries in Mexico, La Soledad near San Miguel de Allende, in the State of Guanajuato, and Santa Maria y Todos Los Santos, Texin, in the State of Veracruz.
Sister Josephine was truly a Benedictine of “good zeal,” which Saint Benedict extols in his Rule.
May the angels lead Sister Josephine into Paradise! May she and all the Faithful Departed enjoy the rewards of Eternal Life!
Requiescat in Pace.
Abbot Christian and the monks
