Sister Lucy Hennessy, a member of the Servants of the Mother of God, became interested in her family history after her parents died.
With both of them gone, she wanted to connect with the relatives that walked the roads she walked, prayed in the church she prayed in, and who, in some cases, went to the school she attended.
What were their names? Where were they born? What were their hopes and dreams?
She explores those questions and more in this family history, revealing a hardworking, Irish-Catholic family who lovingly and courageously passed on the deeds of the Lord, His power, and the wonders He has done.
They toiled and labored in difficult times and lived out their lives doing routine tasks. They were men and women like us who lived ordinary lives and struggled with ordinary problems – and in some cases, very difficult problems.
This book presents a history, including documents and photos, of the author’s parents (Patrick Reardon Hennessy and Annie Murphy Donovan), their parents and grandparents, and sketches of other family members.
Pause and reflect on your own family and its wonderful history as the author delves into the past to reveal the glory of God.
