April 3rd, 2020 – A captivating memoir that chronicles the life of a nun who makes a bold decision to leave her convent in pursuit of true servitude to the poor has now landed on amazon.com.
Written by Mrs. Eileen O’Toole, a dedicated proponent of using her deep-rooted faith as a means to bring peace and social justice for the poor and the needy, At Sister Anna’s Feet: An Old Nun and a Young Nun Break the Holy Rule to Help the Poor is the true account of her life in the convent, and her decision to seek her life’s mission outside the confines of it.
Mrs. O’Toole became a nun at the young age of 18, but soon found herself coming up against the various convent rules and regulations she found arcane. However, during her third year in the novitiate, she was assigned to a new mission where she would meet the person who would come to teach her how to develop her true spiritual self: the elderly mother superior Sister Anna.
Having embraced her teachings, Mrs. O’Toole spent years helping the poor in her Brooklyn parish and beyond, until she was suddenly assigned to a wealthy parish on Long Island. No longer able to follow her true calling of serving the needy, Mrs. O’Toole quickly realized that the only real way to continue on the mission instilled in her by Sister Anna was to leave the convent. Starting anew, she found herself poor and alone – but that didn’t stop her from leading a life that, though outside the convent, honored the tenets of her faith and Sister Anna’s teachings.
In Writing about At Sister’s Anna’s Feet, Denis Hamill, author of Fork in the Road, noted that “Eileen O’Toole has written a true-life tale that will make spirits soar. This is required reading for anyone looking to keep the faith while making a difference in the here and now.”
At Sister Anna’s Feet: An Old Nun and a Young Nun Break the Holy Rule to Help the Poor is available for purchase in hardback, paperback and ebook form on amazon.com
