SISTER IGNACIA

SISTER IGNACIA

A startingly large number of AAs, if asked to name the person who had been the greatest help to them in achieving sobriety, would name a nonalcoholic, Sister Mary Ignatia of the Roman Catholic order of the Sisters of Charity of St. Augustine.

How, we ask, could she, who had no experience of alcoholism itself, have had the compassion and complete understanding which she has shown for every tiny facet of the complex mess which the suffering alcoholic always is? The great spirit in her tiny earthly body has lived tirelessly, weaving golden threads of spiritual inspiration
from one alcoholic to another, day after day, and year after year, whether her patient happened to be Protestant, Catholic, Jewish or of no religion at all.
 
Many have literally had body and soul, and early sobriety, held together by the never-ending strands of her love, concern, and dedication to the salvation of people like us. 
God moves in mysterious ways for all of us, but none of the wondrous mysteries of His grace could compare with the miracle of this tiny nun and her gift to our Fellowship.
