CWN Editor's Note: In 1973, Mother Canopi, a patristics scholar, established the cloistered Mater Ecclesiae Abbey on Isola San Giulio (San Giulio Island), a small island in Lake Orta (photograph). The monastery grew to over 80 nuns by 1989, leading to the founding of a daughter monastery. In 1993, at Pope St. John Paul II’s invitation, Mother Canopi wrote the meditations for the Good Friday Via Crucis at the Colosseum.The above note supplements, highlights, or corrects details in the original source (link above).
