New Book, “Secrets Shared: The Life and Work of Sister Pauline Quinn, OP,” Keeps with Holy Father Francis’ Want for the Church
Submitted by Sister Pauline Quinn, O.P.
Secrets Shared: The Life and Work of Sister Pauline Quinn op is written by Susan Nagelsen and Charles Huckelbury. It is a story of my life traveling on a journey because it was something that God was speaking to my heart to do.
No matter what happened, I wouldn’t give up. Even though I fell many times from the pressure of rejections and indifference, I kept standing up brushing the dirt off then went out and helped thousands.
Pope Francis wants for us to look at people who have been traumatized and abused, giving them the spirit of welcome by showing them respect and dignity which will help build their self-esteem and they too can move forward to contribute something wonderful to better our world.
God works in mysterious ways to show us his compassion and mercy for others, hoping that we learn that all life is important and we have the strength to help rebuild damaged lives by our love. I had no high school education, wounded, little support yet I went out and helped thousands because I found within the Dominican family where I belong.
