Sister Mary Marge: A Natural Educator

Her joy for education is evident, as you can hear both when she talks about launching an after-school religious studies program for high schoolers in the wake of the closure of St. Gertrude’s high school, and also when discussing her own monastic studies in Rome. She is a natural educator. Listen until the end to hear her explain one of the St. Benedict’s quotes at the monastery that is much deeper than it may appear on the surface.

Sister Placida: Isolation

For many around the world, the uncertainty surrounding Covid-19 has brought about a wide range of emotions from grief, to confusion, fear, and anger. I spoke with Sister Placida last week who has had the opportunity to take a voluntary year of solitude away from the monastery community. Despite having a different catalyst for her time alone, she experienced many of the same struggles we are going through today and offers great insight into how to continue moving through these challenging times.

In this episode, she’ll tell you the fascinating story of how she came to be at St. Gertrudes, and the lifted purple Chevy Malibu that got her there.

Father Meinrad: Joining a Divorce Ministry

In this episode, we are rejoining Father Meinrad, the chaplain for the Sisters. Not that long ago, divorce was considered a faux-pas and divorce ministry was virtually unheard of, with minimal support or training resources. Father Meinrad talks about his humbling experience of joining a divorce ministry, where he learned listening was more important than having the “right answer”, and how the principle of “death and resurrection” can be witnessed in those moving through the grieving process.
