Some 150 ladies at the Iowa Catholic Radio Luncheon heard Sister Marie Hesed explain how the “power of your word” can build someone up or really hurt them. Sister Marie also talked about her 27 years of work as one of the first members of the Contemplative branch of the
Missionaries of Charity founded by Blessed Mother Teresa of Calcutta. She spent that time establishing new convents for contemplative nuns in several countries.After years of discernment and joining the missionary S.O.L.T. (Society of Our Lady of the Most Holy Trinity) community, Sister Marie Hesed now resides in Willey, Iowa with other SOLT Sisters sharing her 40 plus years of religious life and missionary experience to help others be a more effective and holy missionary, in their parish or out in the world.
This was the first in a series of this year’s “Ladies Luncheons” hosted by Iowa Catholic Radio and designed to help participants learn more about their faith and meet other women in a fun and relaxed setting. (The food was good too.)
