Sister Margaret Mary


Sister Margaret Mary of the Sacred Heart

On 2 March 2014 Our Lord called home our dear Sister Margaret Mary of the Sacred Heart. She was stationed in Jemez Springs, NM at Cor Jesu Monastery and had spent nearly 50 years as a Handmaid of the Precious Blood at the time of her death.

On 12 March 2014 her funeral Mass and interment were conducted at Cor Jesu Monastery in Benton, TN on the grounds of Christ, Prince of Peace Retreat Center. Father P.J. McGinnity celebrated her funeral Mass. We are grateful for the Knights of Columbus who provided her pall bearers as well as the laity who came to bid her farewell and pray together with us for the repose of her soul.

Prayer for our Deceased Handmaid

O Gentlest Heart of Jesus ever present in the Blessed Sacrament, ever consumed with burning love for the poor captive souls in Purgatory, have mercy on the soul of Thy departed Handmaid. Be not severe in Thy judgment but let some drops of Thy Precious Blood fall upon the devouring flames, and do Thou O merciful Savior send Thy angels to conduct Thy departed Handmaid to a place of refreshment, light and peace. Amen.

May her soul and the souls of all the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace. Amen.
