One of my favorite people in the whole world was the Mother Superior whose “reign” spanned my last years in the convent. In total contrast to the bossy nun who preceded her, this woman of authority treated each individual with great dignity. Vatican II took hold while she served office, and she used her position to gently guide the community away from an atmosphere of authoritarianism and into democracy. It caused quite a ruckus, but I was among the many who were thrilled at the reforms. Others, however, staunchly objected to every single change. It puzzled me why anyone would prefer to remain in Dark Ages.
Stay tuned for the completion of my book.
