Naga: S Aloysius, trials, 1958-1959, 02/15/1958-04/29/1959
Scope and Contents
Aloysius writes concerning difficulties there; need to make vestments and altar breads; her illnesses; S. John's election. 2/15: "If only we could get some AMerican blood here with us." Thinks it would be a big help to have a little "of our own blood here" to give example to the Filipinos. They seem to demand example more than principle. Mother Cecile is great help; is God-sent. Coffee sent is delicious; they never buy it. M.Cecile has saved very bad situation; the "mixing" is not good. Their money is from altar breads and vestments; but they are poor. Palm Sunday: very busy with vestments. Her cysts on head to be removed; powdered milk and cheese are now abundant. 5/18/1958: she needs money for injections; "Humility is such a pleasing virtue, isn't it?" Carmel in China: there Sisters are brainwashed; cloister is a park. Lipa and Hong-Kong: beautiful spirit in both Carmels. Begins to wonder if heart trouble will take her instead of cancer.
