If you saw this memorable video of Mary Anne Marks (Harvard ’10), you couldn’t fail to be impressed. Not only did she give that speech in Latin (it’s actually an annual custom at Harvard), but she is also joining the Dominicans in Ann Arbor — something a little unusual for a Harvard grad. As I’ve noted, she goes to mass at my parish in Queens, so I dropped her a line and invited her to come on “Currents” to talk about her unusual vocation story. The conversation aired last night. Far as I know, it’s the only broadcast interview she’s done.
She’s a charming, poised, very happy young woman — and she clearly has a deep and prayerful sense of religious life, and her own calling.
