All in the family...

Our Poor Clare Nuns and I were pleased to welcome Sister Miriam and Sister Yolanda, also Poor Clares, of the Monasterio de la Encarnacion de Nuestro Senor Jesucristo in Lazaro Cardenas, Michuacan, Mexico. The Sisters are here to raise funds for their monastery, which is located in a very poor area. They provide a strong Catholic witness in a section which is overrun with bars and prostitutes, and they offer perpetual adoration under very difficult circumstances. If you'd like to give a donation to the Sisters, please let me know, and I'll tell you how to get it to them.
