Experiencing the Fullness of God’s Goodness

March 1st, 2012 | Posted by Sr. Marilyn Marie in Uncategorized

Around noon yesterday, our dear Sister Mary Carola Billat entered eternal life and the fullness of God’s incredible goodness. 

When I think of Sister Mary Carola, I think of her never-failing smile, the twinkle in her eye, her loved nickname “Crayola,” and the delightful rapport she had with junior high students.  She definitely knew how to have fun with them, and  her love and care for them was always evident.  As recently as Christmas 2010, former students were still coming to visit. Sister addressed many of us in community as “Kid,” and I always felt it was one of the highest compliments she could give us.

Our Constitutions states, “God gives us the gift and mission to proclaim to others his overwhelming goodness and provident care.”  Sister Mary Carola experienced this goodness so profoundly that it naturally spilled over in her many relationships with others.  We rejoice in the blessing her life has been and the gift her memory and intercession will continue to be.
