When I returned from London my beloved Sister Mary Therese met me at Christchurch airport. She still had the veil and I'd been away in London for nearly 20 years. ... she whipped off her veil and said "what do you think of my hair?" Well, she might as well have stripped stark naked. It was the most shocking thing that I've ever been through.
