We learned yesterday of the death of Sister Deirdre Michael Clark SBVM, in St Joseph’s Home, Harborne, where she had been in the devoted care of the Little Sisters of the Poor for some years. Mother Winsome had spent several hours with her only three days before, having been called to the Home, and had remained in constant contact. Aged 92, Sr Deirdre Michael was approaching her 65th anniversary of Profession in Life Vows. She will be celebrating in heaven! It was a wonderful and joyous day to go, the great Solemnity of the Epiphany, and we pray now for her soul, that she may rest in peace. As the old Collect for Epiphany expressed it: ‘Mercifully grant that we, who know thee now by faith, may after this life have the fruition of thy glorious Godhead’. May God bless you this day.
