About Sister Eileen O’Keeffe: One of my favorite phrases is “an attitude of gratitude!” I am so grateful for the many people in my life who have shown me the face of God — my parents, family, friends, community members, co-workers, students, the thousands of people I have met over the years. A highlight for me was in 1976 when Mother (St.) Teresa of Calcutta stayed overnight with our community in El Paso where she was the keynote speaker at the CYC convention. She touched my life deeply with her respect for ALL persons and her desire to treat everyone as a child of God. I’ve had countless opportunities to keep learning how to do this and hope together we can make a positive impact on our world. With Dag Hammarskjold, I say, “For all that has been — THANKS! For all that will be — YES!”
