Irma Maria Elisabeth: Sister Maria Elisabeth radiates happiness. She is 27 and has been with her congregation, the Toca de Assis, for nearly ten years. Every day, Maria Elisabeth takes food to the homeless, and tries to talk with them a while. Although her mother saw nothing wrong in her becoming a nun, it was more difficult for her father. Maria Elisabeth, whose family comes from Italy, has made reaching heaven her aim in life. If she has to describe herself, she would call herself 'the work of God's mercy'.
