An Old Irish Blessings for the People of Fiji especially the Flood Victims & those that are suffering.


An Old Irish Blessing
May the road rise up to meet you.
May the wind always be at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face,
and rains fall soft upon your fields.
And until we meet again,
May God hold you in the palm of His hand.

A Tribute to Sr Loyola SM who has just celebrated her 90th Birthday in' Flood Stricken Nadi' in Fiji. This also includes all those Irish Missionaries/ Marist Nuns, Priests, Church Ministers of other denominations, Brothers & Lay people and Business entrepreneurs that helped educated & shaped or funded any of these Children of Fiji in the hey days & and are still now.

Sr Loyola was a shining role model for the students of Loreto High School in the old Capital of Levuka on the Island of Ovalau, she taught until she retired.

In one of her comments to someone that recently visited her at Marist Convent in Nadi after her birthday, quote:
" Oh its so wonderful to know that all these young women I had taught still remembers me for example, Ro Temumu Kepa, Na Marama Roko Tui Dreketi, The highest ranking Chief of the Burebasaga Province & others still come and visit me. I must have been good to them."

We wish you well Sr Loyala.
