Twice a nun, forever gratitude-filled
Sr. Dolores Dean returns to the Benedictines at age 72
Deep peace, the kind that transforms the soul and ripples outward into the world, is not guaranteed in this life. Benedictine Sister Dolores Dean knows what it’s like to obtain such a gift, to lose it and then — nearly a lifetime later — come home to it for good.
“It hasn’t always been easy, but you hang on,” said Sister Dolores, 83. “What it comes down to is you just have to find where God wants you to be. For me it took a long time until everything could come to fruition.”
