• Softly Shines This Love

Sr Marie Leonie Williams’ new book of poems is a celebration of almost seventy years as a professed Sister of Mercy in Australia. The poems include memories, thanksgivings, family, colleagues, friendships, places, journeys and personalities that have formed her life and brought about the joy and enthusiasm that is so evident in her writing. Above all, these are poems that reflect a life of faith and service within her religious congregation and the wider Catholic church and tradition that is so central to her life and ministry.

Marie Leonie Williams is North Queensland born and bred and belongs to a Celtic Family – seven/eighths Irish and one/eighth Welsh! She has been a Sister of Mercy for 67 years, spending many years in the PNG bush areas of the Sepik, working in education for children and to adults; and in ministry in the Great Sandy Desert, closely collaborating with the Indigenous population in all things life-giving. Marie is a member of the Conference of Spiritual Directors Australia and currently ministers part-time at the Townsville House of Prayer.
