Liberia, A Mystical Land, A Humble People
Mary Justin Hornish
Wednesday, October 6th 7:00 pm
Mary Justin Hornish discussed her memoir of the 16 years she spent as a missionary nun and nurse in Africa. Mary Justin, along with three other Sisters, arrived at a small coastal village in Liberia in 1971, where there was no way in or out except by a small plane or dugout canoe. The Society for African Missions had been there for several years, so a church and a school had already been established, but help was desperately needed. The people in the bush lived a primitive life with practices of witchcraft and human sacrifice. Education, especially in health care, was vitally important. Mary Justin’s journey was filled with adventure, hard work, heartache, and memories of kindness and hospitality. What took place during those years was beyond her imagination and led her to living a deeper dimension of the spiritual life.
