Truth is sometimes communicated in a very special way.
This was the vocation of Sister Mary Visitation, our former library and gentle friend, who taught us not only through the rich medium of books, but also through an exemplary life.
Hidden in the inscrutable will of God is the mystery of why her stay among us was so brief, why the candle of her life tapered.
Yet the work she began here continues to instruct us, for "a teacher affects eternity" and her influence does not stop when God closes the book of individual life, snuffs out the candle, and begins the second volume - ETERNAL LIFE.
