Mourning the death of Sr. Maria Muth OP

Sr. Maria Muth OP

Sr. Maria Muth died on February 3th, 2022 at the age of 83 in South Africa.

“I am the one for whom God waits! I am awaiting the One who is awaiting me.
Embrace this season with hope. It will lead you to your inmost depths where God is contemplating you.”

(Macrina Wiederkehr)

Sr Maria was born on 10 October 1938 in Rüsselsheim in the diocese of Mainz (Germany).

She entered the convent in Neustadt in January 1960 and made her first profession on her 23rd birthday, 10 October 1961 in Neustadt. In March 1963 she was sent to South Africa where she made her final profession in Oakford in July 1965.

She was meticulous in her work as she carried out God’s plan for her by sharing her financial skills and witnessing to God’s presence among those who worked with her.

Maria loved nature and for many years, she and Sr Angelina climbed the mountain in Magaliesburg before breakfast every Saturday. She loved the ocean and walks on the beach.

She will be greatly missed by all those of us who appreciated her friendship and love.  May she now see her God face to face and enjoy meeting all those who have gone before her.
