“The joy of God is our strength, Alleluia!”
cf. Neh 8,10
Sorrowfully and with much gratitude we, the Sisters of the General Administration of the Missionary Pallottine Sisters and all Provinces give back into God’s loving hands our beloved and revered,
Sister Maria Knaus, SAC
Sr. Maria guided our Congregation as a Superior General, as Provincial, and as General Mission Procurator with love, wisdom, and courage. Looking towards the future of the Community she acted with confidence in the Lord. God was the source of her strength and benevolence in the days of her service and responsibility. God was her refuge in the dark valley of sickness.
In great peace this Saturday morning at 5:30 on the 18th of February she went home to the Father, the Source of her joy.
The burial will be on Thursday, 23 February 2012 at 10.30 a.m. in the cemetery of the Pallottine Sisters in Kloster Marienborn, Limburg. In the following Eucharistic Celebration we thank God for the life and ministry of Sr. Maria.
