Sister Monique, in the service of prisoners
At 70 years of age, Sister Monique Lorrain, of the Xaverian Missionary Sisters of Mary community, visits prisoners every week at Korhogo prison in Côte d'Ivoire. "Prison is a place of suffering. But even where there is most suffering, the Resurrection arrives," she tells Aleteia. Having entered the Xaverians at the age of 20, she was sent to Chad, then to Cameroon, Burkina Faso, and finally to Côte d'Ivoire, where she has been living since 2009.
