For 25 years we traveled with circus workers in the USA. Here they all join in praying a blessing over the tent at the beginning of season.  While we are not actually on the road right now, we are still in touch with these friends of many years and miles.
Little Sister Magdeleine died in 1989 at the age of 91 after celebrating the 50th anniversary of the foundation and receiving the final approval of the Constitutions of the congregation that she never started out to found.  She is buried in Rome.
