Prayers please

Please remember in your prayers Sister M Agnes OSC a Poor Clare nun now resident with the Little Sisters of the Poor in Newcastle. Although not a member of the LMS (she is still an 'enclosed' nun) she has a great love of the EF & gratefully receives her own copy of 'Mass of Ages' together with the diocesan newsletter put out every 2 months by us.

For most of her religious life she was a member of the community of Clare Abbey in Darlington but when that community merged with another abbey in the south of England she could not travel so moved into St Joseph's Home as a resident - still daily wearing her full habit!

She is over 90 years old & has a very bad chest some much so that she was taken into the Freeman Hospital in Newcastle on Monday evening. She is a wonderful, holy lady with a tremendous sense of humour who is loved by sisters, staff & residents of St Joseph's.

Her own prayer list is huge & very efficacious as many will vouch for. We have added greatly to her list so-much-so that she tells us she has to rise earlier each day to complete it.

Theresa & I have very much taken Sr Agnes to our hearts and beg your prayers for her well-being.
