I am not sure if this is the place to post this or not. I apologize if it’s in the wrong place.
A few years ago I met a sister who said she is with the Sisters of the Humility of Mary. I had never heard of this order before, but the name has stuck with me. Something about the name seems so fitting for the world we live in. If we all sought out the humility of Mary I think many of our problems would be nonexistent.
Some of my questions are, has anyone else met any of these ladies? What can you tell me about their spirituality? Do they have third orders? The sister I met did not wear a habit. Is this true for all of them? I know she lead Ignatian Spirituality exercises and RCIA at that particular parish. She also lived alone, no other sisters in the area. It was a very different lifestyle than the sisters I grew up knowing, but it seemed she lived her faith more fully in many ways as well. That isn’t meant to say that the sister I grew up with were not living out their faith, it was just done differently and mainly by teaching at the schools and living in a convent on school property. This sister lived in a townhouse in a neighborhood and was involved with many local organizations. Not sure how to put into words what I’m trying to say.
I cannot remember the name of this good sister, but she was very caring and easy to talk with. She brought comfort to my family at a time we were close to despair. I hope one day to meet her again and thank her for her kindness. She is no longer attached to that parish or in that area so I don’t know how that could happen though. In the meantime, any information about these women and their congregation is appreciated.
