This "seldom seen" is not seldom seen because it's hidden away or on a seldom traveled path. On the contrary, it is really right out in the open. This is our necrology board and it holds the names of 261 of our sisters who have died since we came to Erie in 1856.
It came to mind for me because last week as we marked the first anniversary of Sister Veronica Byer, whose death last June marked the beginning of the 10-month span in which seven of our sisters died. So, when Veronica's anniversary was announced at Evening Prayer (which we do every day) I thought, "Oh my goodness, the first anniversaries of the seven sisters are beginning."
