Aug. 15 was the feast day of the Assumption of the Blessed Mother, full of grace. I want to share my story of another woman who was full of grace, Sister Catherine Ann Cesnik. I was 14 in 1965 when I entered high school at Archbishop Keough School in Baltimore. I was painfully shy - my family had moved to Catonsville in August of that year - and I went from a class of about 30 at Blessed Sacrament School on York Road to a class of over 300 young girls. I knew no one. It was a very painful time in my life, but God sends grace, and I found it in Sister Catherine's English class.
