QuotationShe [Fr. Anselm's sister] had been completely unable to understand Fr. A's vocation and had challenged him on it without pulling any punches, and the points she made were serious. (This in a letter at Easter.) I had written back suggesting she read Jung's Undiscovered Self. She had not replied. She was then working as a nurse in a psychiatric hospital.
