Thirteen nuns from a Michigan convent die from COVID-19 in deadly wave that claimed 12 in just one month and left more than a dozen seriously ill

Thirteen nuns from the same Michigan convent have died from coronavirus in a deadly wave that claimed 12 of them in just one month.

The nuns, who lived together at the Felician Sisters' convent in Livonia, were all aged between 79 and 99 years of age.

Twelve of them died in the one month between April 10 and May 10. At the time, 18 other nuns had contracted COVID-19 and were being treated for the virus.

On June 27, one of the 18 nuns battling the virus also died.

The nuns lived and worked together - mostly as teachers - at the Livonia convent, which was home to 65 sisters prior to the pandemic.

Sister Mary Andrew Budinski, who is the superior of the Livonia convent, told the Sisters Global Report that the virus spread through the convent like 'wildfire' after it first struck.

The nuns at the convent are spread out across three floors, including one dedicated to 24 hour nursing care, one for assisted living and another for independent living.

Visitors were banned from visiting as of March 14 but essential workers, including nurses, aides and dining staff, were still allowed.

The virus spread rapidly after two nursing aides contracted the virus.

'I first heard two aides had contracted the virus,' Sister Andrew said.

'We don't know who they are, and we don't want to know. Then it hit sisters on the second floor, and it went through like wildfire.'

Sister Mary Luiza Wawrzyniak, 99, was the first to die on April 10.

Four others followed that week: Sr. Celine Marie Lesinski, 92, and Sr. Mary Estelle Printz, 95, died on April 12; Sr. Thomas Marie Wadowski, 73, on April 15; and Sr. Mary Patricia Pyszynski, 93, on April 17.

The deaths continued in mid-April when Sr. Mary Clarence Borkoski, 83, died on April 20; Sr. Rose Mary Wolak, 86, died on April 21; and Sr. Mary Janice Zolkowski, 86, passed on April 22.

Sr. Mary Alice Ann Gradowski, 73, died April 25; Sr. Victoria Marie Indyk, 69, died April 26; and Sr. Mary Martinez Rozek, 87, died on April 28.

Sr. Mary Madeleine Dolan, 82, died on May 10 before Sr. Mary Danatha Suchyta, 98, died June 27.

'They weren't giving us numbers,' Sister Andrew said of those who were dying.

'Just every day, they'd say, 'Another sister.' 'Another sister.' 'Another sister.' It was very frightening.' Source


"I didn't see, I don't see any Great Pope or Great Monarch before an extremely great tribulation, horrifying, terrible and general for all Christendom. But before that time, twice there will be a short lived peace; TWO shaky, servile, doubtful popes" Mélanie


“The great chastisement will come, because men will not be converted; yet it is only their conversion that can hinder these scourges. God will begin to strike men by inflicting lighter punishments in order to open their eyes; then He will stop, or may repeat His former warnings to give place for repentance. But sinners will not avail themselves of these opportunities; He will, in consequence, send more severe castigations, anxious to move sinners to repentance, but all in vain. Finally, the obduracy of sinners shall draw upon their heads the greatest and most terrible calamities. Mélanie

“We are all guilty! Penance is not done, and sin increases daily. Those who should come forward to do good are retained by fear. Evil is great. A moderate punishment serves only to irritate the spirits, because they view all things with human eyes. God could work a miracle to convert and change the aspect of the earth without chastisement. God will work a miracle; it will be a stroke of His mercy; but after the wicked shall have inebriated themselves with blood, the scourge shall arrive Mélanie

“What countries shall be preserved from such calamities? Where shall we go for refuge? I, in my turn, shall ask, What is the country that observes the commandments of God? What country is not influenced by human fear where the interest of the Church and the glory of God are at stake? (Ah, indeed! What country, what nation upon earth?) In behalf of my Superior and myself, I have often asked myself where we could go for refuge, had we the means for the journey and for our subsistence, on condition that no person were to know it? But I renounce these useless thoughts. We are very guilty! In consequence of this, it is necessary that a very great and terrible scourge should come to revive our faith, and to restore to us our very reason, which we have almost entirely lost. Mélanie

Victim of Jesus nee MELANIE CALVAT,
Shepherdess of La Salette

"I protest highly against a different text, which people may dare publish after my death. I protest once more against the very false statements of all those who dare say and write First that I embroidered the Secret; second, against those who state that the Queen Mother did not say to transmit the Secret to all her people."
