The website of the Ordinariate Sisters of the Blessed Virgin Mary, Kingstanding, announces today:
It is, for us, the Requiem and Burial of our dearly beloved Sr Mary Clare, the first of our little Community to pass ‘beyond the veil’. We are certain that she is praying for us as we are for her. The hymn ‘Just as I am’, which accompanied all her major transitions in the religious life, will be sung at the Requiem, and its refrain expresses perfectly both the swiftness of her passing and the love which inspired her life: ‘O Lamb of God, I come’.
May the angels lead her to her Lord, and may she rest in peace. Amen.
