A woman to admire

Mother  Mary Alphonsa dedicated herself to caring for cancer patients. She is the founder of the hospice movement. Mother Mary was the daughter of author, Nathaniel Hawthorne. She walked away from Protestantism and a comfortable, pampered life to serve Our Lord.

Her and her father's ancestor was involved in Salem witch trials.

I wonder if his firmness against witchcraft or her father's distance from his severity was more involved in gaining her the grace of conversion.
