Sister Melanie celebrated her 60th anniversary of religious profession

On 3 May 2020 celebrated Sr. Melanie her 60th anniversary of religious profession. She keeps fit with daily walks.

After Sr. Melanie was transferred from Lower Franconia to Upper Bavaria in 2015, she returned to Neustadt am Main in September 2019 as part of the process of dissolving our monastery in Dießen. She quickly settled in again and now supports the daily routine of the community with her skills and her known reliability.

Sr. Melanie keeps herself physically fit with her daily walks. As an avid newspaper reader, she is open to and interested in what is going on in the world, and then carries the problems of our time to God in prayer.

Sr. Melanie joined our Congregation in 1958 and served as procurator for over 50 years. During this time, there were many legal innovations and changes to regulations, which she all studied and implemented for the benefit of the sisters. In this regard, she was particularly committed to the interests of our missionaries. We are very grateful to her for this service.

Trusting in God's unwavering merciful love, Sr. Melanie's favourite Bible passage is,  "Lord, you know everything, you also know that I love you ..." (Joh21:17b). Again and again Sr Melanie places herself in the presence of God's Love, in whom she finds strength and rest.

We wish Sr. Melanie that she may complete her life in joy and gratitude under God's protection and blessing.
