Quote of the day: 21 April

A few months previously a young Cologne girl had entered the small novitiate at Lindenthal. Wide-eyed, she had observed Sr. Benedicta and all the happenings on her special day. Now she clung to Sr. Benedicta like a small trusting child and asked,
“How does Your Charity feel?”
Sr. Benedicta answered in a tone that cannot be imitated:
“Like the Bride of the Lamb.”
