Your love for the poor and oppressed was indeed to to be remembered. You brought a revelution into our thinking and into our action.Your love for the poor encouraged many to move out in to the field of social justice.Even if I write pages nothing much is said .You are above all what we can say ,or write.

Jo Ann Paulin on February 16, 2016 at 8:47 am My first encounter with Theresa Rose was my trip to India for the 50th Anniversary of the Sisters coming to Mokama. She had a presence of peace and love about her. She was so very kind to all of us and went with us on our trips to other missions in India. I remember one place we stopped she went through the shops with us and all the shopkeepers knew her and one gave her a statue of an elephant with its trunk up. When we got on the bus she gave it to me and she explained that an elephant with its trunk up was a sign of good luck or a blessing. It had a baby elephant carved inside it that you could see from the intricately carved designs on the sides. I was so honored to receive the gift meant for her. I was so pleased when she came to Nazareth to live. Her smile was infectious and always brought a smile to others faces when we saw it. My last conversation with Theresa Rose was about how thankful I was to receive the gift and she did remember our time in India. She has not only been an inspiration and blessing to SCNs but to many SCNAs. She now rest with her God and will forever remain in our hearts. Ann Palatty on February 16, 2016 at 5:32 am I resonate with the sentiments written by all the articles to this memorial of Teresa Rose. I was also privileged to have had her as a Director,mentor, friend, and Provincial. My year with her as her secretary taught me many life’s lessons of dedication, commitment, vision along with child like simplicity and humour. May her soul rest in peace. Patsy O'Toole on February 15, 2016 at 9:14 pm Such beautiful remembrances of a beautiful woman! When Teresa Rose returned to Nazareth, we were blessed at the Office of Congregational Advancement to have her as a member of our team. She was our prayer leader each day, and helped to bring SCNs in mission even closer to us and our work. In my last conversation with her just a week before she passed away, she told me details of young women in India that she was helping to “sponsor”….thinking of others till her last breath. I have no doubt that she will continue to inspire,motivate and guide us. How blessed we are to have her as part of our lives. mary eula johnson on February 15, 2016 at 9:09 pm As I read the reflections of Teresa Rose, her humility, her simplicity, her deep trust in love of God, and her love of mission, I am filled with gratitude and awe .She is a model for all of us and for all who will join us in the future. I am humbled to ask her blessing as a classmate and a person I HAVE ALWAYS admired. Thank you for your witness of what IT MEANS TO BE A FAITHFUL SCN. Mary Eula Sister Margaret Davenport on February 15, 2016 at 8:38 pm Sister Teresa Rose touched my heart indirectly through Sister Emily. When our class prepared for the celebration of our Silver Jubilee, we asked Sister Emily to direct our retreat at Nazareth. Emily gave us a wonderful gift of retreat designed especially for SCNs shared with her by Sister Teresa Rose. I have kept my copy and prayed with it through the years, and am deeply grateful for the inspiration of Sister’s life to us all.
