    Thinking of all the Sisters of Poor Claire. Sister Therisina and Sister Mary Claire were such a blessing and so nice. There absence will impact us all immensely, however Heaven has hailed two new saints. May God Bless them and all the Sisters.

    With much love & with tears will my prayers go out to the Sisters of Poor Claire. Both Sister Theresina and Sister Mary Clare will be remembered in my prayers as two beautiful sisters who had shown kindness to everyone. We now have two great saints in Heaven!

    The Poor Clare presence in Omaha for so many generations has been a great blesing and witness to prayer and contemplation. May the Journey to the Kingdom for Sr. Theresina bring her the many blessings of watchng over the Community of Poor Clare Sisters and being a guardian of the Rule of St. Francis and Clare who inspirited such heroic witness to the Gospel, simplicity of life, and cntemplative devotion.

    With my prayers and sympathy to each of the Poor Clare Sisters, their families, friends, and benefactors.

    Many blessings and fulness of hope in the Resurrection of Christ and all his prmises.,
    Fr. David La Plante
