Sister of Sion passes away, leaving example of joy and charity.

This morning it was announced that Sr. Ivone dos Santos, NDS (St. Amaro, Brazil) has passed away. She had a stroke last week, which compromised her movements, sight and speech.

Sr. Ivone was known for her smile, irreverence, simplicity and, above all, for her deep fraternal charity. We religious of Sion pray for her soul and the comfort of her family and friends, but above all, we hold to the certainty of the resurrection.

Check out the video below for the beautiful work that Sr. Ivone has done during her stay in Jerusalem.
