We share a photo of Mother Dolorosa, one of the pioneering Handmaids from the early years, on the occasion of her 100th birthday. Mother John Paul is presenting her with a large card during a very festive birthday party. She resoundingly answered, with gratitude, whenever asked how it felt to be 100, “WONDERFUL!” Her age and health may have taken some things, but she never lost Father Gerald’s spirit of joy and thankfulness. May we all be such joyful souls.
She was not the only triple digit Handmaid either. But that’s another post for the future.
