The Religious Life

“When he founded our Carmel of Sebikotane, the Archbishop [Lefebvre] was asking himself why the Catholic missions were expanding so much and why the pagans were converting. He felt that the reign of God was coming closer and closer. In answer to these questions, he explained that ‘this is because five Carmelite nuns are praying for the apostolate.’ Really, he puts a lot of trust in us! But again, we tried to live up to this trust.” (Mother Superior of the Carmel in Senegal)
