With deep sorrow Vincentians of the Eastern Province join their prayers to the Sisters of Charity of Nazareth and the School Sisters of St. Francis as they mourn the brutal murder of Sister Paula Merrill of the Sisters of Charity of Nazareth, and Sister Margaret Held of the School Sisters of St. Francis. They were found dead in their shared home in Durant, Mississippi. The Durant police and the Mississippi Bureau of Investigation are investigating. Please pray in gratitude for the precious lives of Sisters Paula and Margaret.

In my heart and soul,I feel that Sister Paula and Sister Margaret zoomed into Heaven escorted by God’s beautiful angels. In their glory,they feel no pain from the tragic deaths which ended their earthbound lives. May they have joy in seeing God’s face in His Forever and may God console the deeply sorrowful people who are missing Paula and Margaret in their murderous absence from this Church Militant.
In His love and mine..
