On this day in 1992, two Adorers were killed by rebel forces on the road between Gardnersville and Barnersville, Liberia. They were two of five sisters serving in Liberia during the country’s Civil War. Three days later, the final three sisters would be shot outside of their convent.

After the recent death of Sister Toni Cusimano, letters were found in her possession that were some of the last letters received by the missionary sisters, sent in March 1992.

This week, on the anniversary of their death, we hear the echo of their voices and consider the ways we have been altered by the loss of these women.
