Sister Maria Cecilia went to heaven after a hard fight against cancer. Thousands have shared on social networks images of her agony , a time in which she never lost peace or joy. She graduated as a nurse and the 26 -year-old made her first vows as a Discalced Carmelite in 2003 made her perpetual profession. Six months ago she was diagnosed with tongue cancer and the disease had lung metastases. She died on Wednesday June 22 at dawn. Eternal rest grant unto her O Lord. #catholic
Nun playing the violin to Jesus. When I was a child, I wanted to be just like her. This picture I saw in Birgitta Yavaris beautiful book. And still after all these years, this picture is so touching, so beautiful.
St. Teresa Benedicta of the Cross (Edith Stein) was a brilliant philosopher. She stopped believing in God at 14. Through study of philosophy she grew into a woman of integrity and intelligence, following the truth wherever it led her. She came across the autobiography of St. Teresa of Avila, which she read all in one night, and upon finishing exclaimed, “This is the Truth!” This began a spiritual journey that led to her to being baptized Catholic. She later became a Carmelite nun.
The simplicity of a catholic nun's quarters. There are times when I dream of having a little cottage out in the woods where I can read, think, and write, where the bedroom would look something like this.
