Sister Constance: The wealth of 80 years in religious life
Marking 80 years of religious life was Sister Mary Constance Fitzgerald, 97, who was joined by her sister and brother: Sister Anne Gertrude Fitzgerald, 96, who last year celebrated her 75th anniversary as a CSJ, and Redemptorist Father Bill Fitzgerald, 93, and a priest for 68 years (42 of them in Brazil as a missionary). No doubt they were joined in spirit by Sister Catherine Anita Fitzgerald, who died several years ago, at age 86, having been a CSJ for 67 years with many years served as librarian at Mount St. Mary’s College.
That’s 290 years which the four Fitzgeralds have given collectively in ministry to the people of God, with Sister Constance still adding to that total as she tutors students at Mount St. Mary’s and assists a religious from India who is taking a course in writing.

Prayer of the MonthPapal intentions for November: That priests who experience difficulties may find comfort in their suffering, support in their doubts, and confirmation in their fidelity. That as fruit of the continental mission, Latin American Churches may send missionaries to other Churches.
Papal intentions for December: That children who are victims of abandonment or violence may find the love and protection they need. That Christians, enlightened by the Word incarnate, may prepare humanity for the Savior's coming.
