In a reflection, Sister Marlene related a pivotal moment in her life. “In 1970 I accidentally signed up for a Charismatic Retreat at our motherhouse. (God’s ‘accidents’ have been good for me!) My prayer life opened up and I learned to praise, to focus, to discern, and to listen.” Later, at the age of 62, she met a spiritual director who helped her know the gift of God’s love, mercy, compassion, and healing. “My heart has changed. I am less of a head person and more of a heart person now. . . I hunger for a deeper relationship with my Lord.”
