Notes
"On August 20 [2013] I went to the funeral of Sister Constance Murphy at St. James Cathedral in Toronto. For 77 years, she had been a life-professed member of the Society of the Sisters of St. John the Divine (SSJD), a devoted educator of the young and advocate for the aged who offered tireless pastoral care. Her sisters nursed her to a holy and peaceful death at the age of 109-and-a-half". As the hearse pulled away from the cathedral on its way to the crematorium, the sisters all waved goodbye. "Knowing the sisters as I do, I recognized that they waved their goodbye in every confidence that on a distant shore, another great company. beyond number, was greeting their beloved Constance -- the angels, the saints, and holy women and men in every age welcoming her into the presence of the Lord. In that final gesture toward Constance, SSJD, I saw the essence of what we celebrate as we keep the feasts of All Saints and All Souls. One company says, 'Farewell'. Another says, 'Welcome'. Both find their joy and their hope in Christ, crucified and risen".

She also provides practical suggestions for ministering to the elderly as well as thoughtful reflections on aging". -- back cover.
