Earlier today (Sunday October 3rd) Sr Maureen McDonnell died. She was my father’s first cousin and truly lovely person. May she rest in peace. Sr Maureen had been based in Carrick-on-Shannon, Co. Leitrim and was a Religious Sister of the Marist Community. Her funeral takes place on Wednesday next in St Joseph’s Church, Leitrim Village.
Maureen, we put you yesterday under Our Lady’s protection. Tonight we put you under the protection of her only Son. May Peter freely open to you the gates of Paradise. May God and Mary come to meet you and bring your Soul with them to the City of The Saints. Amen.
