    Although the number of weeks that I have been in Sister Anselm’s presence has not been many, the effect of seeing in El Salvador her heroic witness to the Gospel and Christ-like kindness towards everybody has always lived on in my memory as a constant inspiration and challenge. (Indeed, we named one of our children Anselm.)

    It is appropriate that she died on the Feast of the Holy Innocents because her life as a missionary, in union with her companions ,has been one of loving devotion to the suffering and often persecuted innocents, young and old, of Central America.

    Her presence and seraphic smile will add to the holiness of the heavenly realm , from where she will look over and intercede for us all, together with Clare and Francis in the embrace of her beloved Lord, whom she served so faithfully in the land named after that same saving Lord, EL Salvador.
