Sisters---Continuing to Give Even After Death
As Catholic Christians, we believe that life is eternal and death but moves into the experience of eternal life in God. For the School Sisters of Notre Dame, not only is life eternal but so is giving. For years, they have been participating in a study on Alzheimer's. Participating in the study means donating one's brain to the study upon her death. The study has been underway for 20 years and is led by Dr. David Snowdon. A book, Aging With Grace, talks about the undertaking, and a recent article in The Monterey Herald gives compelling insight into the lives of the women who have committed to continue to give their all upon their deaths. This is a must read!
