You and Cera need to go back to first grade and learn to read.
No one said Fr. Sretenovic made sister a carmelite.
I said: "Fr. Sretenovic witnessed her final vows."
For you to continue to insist she was not a real nun is not only detraction about her but also about fr. Sretenovic.
Sister lived and died a carmelite life, thanks in part to many at OLHC who did not help her with even the basic necessities of life (food, water and shelter) and actively persecuted her, including Fr. Starbuck who told her the police would be called if she set foot on OHLC property. You should all hang your heads in shame.
God rest her soul.
If anyone should be hanging her head in shame, it is you Epiphany. You are the one engaging in calumny against a good and faithful priest.
Out of Christian charity I have refrained from speaking the facts. But as you and others have continued to attack a good and holy priest, I must speak out with the facts as personally told to me by Debbie.
Debbie, God rest her soul, was a laywoman for the first 60 years of her life, when she decided she wanted to be a nun and sewed a her own habit. She personally told me that she had a "high-power career in New York" and "shopped only at the most expensive department stores" and bought "only the most expensive designer suits".
She also told me she had two grown sons. Where were they and why did they not help out their aging mother?
Debbie was troubled,had mental and emotional problems, and repeatedly changed her name. I forget her other names prior to Sister Anastasia, but one was Sister Maria de Torres.
She left OLHC numerous times for greener pastures. Once I remember she told me she was going to France to join an order. Six or so months later she returned and said it did not work out. Several years later she left for South America for a different religious order and told me if I wrote to her to use invisible ink because the police would be watching her. Once again she returned and said it did not work out.
Several different families took her in for periods of time and once again, it did not work out. One person who took her in told me she expected to be waited on. More details are known about this problem, but let us let the dead rest in peace. For a couple of years she lived in a homeless shelter in Long Beach.
May she rest in peace. May Father Perez rest in peace. Let us pray.
Father Perez had complaints from chapel members about her constant begging before and after Mass. It is my understanding that he repeatedly asked her to stop doing so,, but she persisted. Eventually Father Perez instructed Father Starbuck to tell her to leave.
(This was his M.O., as when he told Father Starbuck to deal with the school board to find out why they refused to vet Wiest)
Debbie was attending the Indult at the San Juan Capistrano Mission when she passed away. If you continue to have questions, please contact Father John who says the Indult Mass there.
