An address given by Mrs Paula Conrad (Focolare Centre – Welwyn Garden City,Thurs. 14th October 2010)
I can never thank God enough for sending me this work to do for Him and for all the inspired, prayerful and unique souls who have also been called to use their gifts and love, to enrich others lives. Over all these years I have kept many treasured memories and keepsakes. Looking through the archives I found a precious letter written by Sister Mary McEvoy. She had just set up a group in Islington but sadly she was killed, crossing the road at Kings Cross one morning. She was on her way to the 7.30am Polish Mass. In her last letter to me, she closed it with these words “This is the Lord’s doing and it is marvellous in our eyes”. I really could not find more appropriate words to conclude this 30th Anniversary reflection.
