Dominican Nun goes to prison: “The power of prayer unites me with them”

Sr. Maria Grazia of the Dominican Monastery of “S. Maria della Neve e S. Domenico” at Pratovecchio, Arezzo in Italy visited her friends in prison as a gift for her 25th profession anniversary. Her is her testimony.

Six, seven, eight, nine, ten… Don’t worry, I haven’t lost my marbles! These are just the dates on which the verse from the Gospel, “I was in prison and you visited me”, came true for me. It’s true, I was able to visit the prisoners with whom I’ve been exchanging letters for several years. The Letter to the Hebrews says: Remember those who are in prison, as though in prison with them; and those who are ill-treated, since you also are in the body (Hebrews 13:3). This year I celebrate the 25th anniversary of my religious profession and I decided to ask my Prioress for a present – one that would make not only me, but my prisoner friends happy. She said yes provisionally, and the Master of the Order confirmed the permission.
