“Surely your goodness and unfailing love will pursue me all the days of my life and I
will live in the house of the LORD forever” (Ps 23:6)

Having accomplished her mission on earth, Sr Maria Louisa breathed her last on Sunday 10 July, 2022 at 11 am at the age of 72 and 46th year of religious life at Bethany Convent, Jayamahal, Bangalore. Sr Maria Louisa nee Louisa Mary G. hails from St Francis Xavier’s Church Chikkakammanahalli, Bangalore. She was the eighth child among the nine children of late Mr P. Paul and late Lourdmary. Sr Susheela BS her younger sister is the member of St Joseph’s Convent KR Nagar.
Sr Maria Louisa was a loving sister known for her simplicity and life of contentment. Her compassionate love for the needy was an inspiration for all. Her devotion towards the Blessed Sacrament and Blessed Virgin Mary was notable. She spent time in intercessory prayers and recitation of the rosary for the needs of the whole world.

She had her primary and secondary school education at Gulabi School Jayamahal. She joined Bethany on 16.07.1972 and made her First Profession on 05.05.1976. She had her further studies including Master’s degree in literature, in Dharward University and BEd at St Joseph’s College Mysore. After her profession, she served as a loving and dedicated teacher in our institutions at Ave Maria Sirsi, St Mary’s Quepem Goa, St Joseph’s KR Nagar, St Michael’s Dandeli, St Mary’s Kutta, St Mary’s Arsikere, Holy Cross Arsikere, Mother of Mercy Gadenahally, Loyola Convent Gadag, Gratia Plena Sanitibastwad, Jyothi High school Bangalore and Seva Sadan, Doddabelavangala

She has rendered commendable service in the field of education. She also involved herself in pastoral activities such as teaching Catechism, visiting the families, attending SCC meetings and visiting the sick. After her retirement, she was actively involved in prison ministry in Archdiocese of Bangalore, served the school children and dropouts at Doddabelavangala.

During the past 6 years she was suffering from chronic diabetes mellitus disease and was undergoing dialysis at St Martha’s hospital, Bangalore. On 9 July 2022, she showed symptoms of uneasiness after the dialysis and on 10th morning her condition grew critical; she suffered cardiac arrest and left to her eternal abode. Hearing this news, I who was present for the Educators’ Meet rushed to Bethany Convent Jayamahal along with Sr Sahana the Provincial Superior and Sr Severine Superior of the community to commend her soul to God. Her funeral rites will be held at St John the Evangelist Church Bangalore, on 11.07.2022 at 9:30 am.

I extend my sincere condolences to Sr Sahana, the Provincial Superior and all the sisters of the Bangalore Province; Sr Severine the Superior and the members of the Bethany Convent Jayamahal, who loved and supported her during the illness.

Eternal Rest Grant unto her O Lord and let perpetual light shine upon her. May she rest in peace. Amen.


Sr M Rose Celine BS
