Mother Elisa Magni F.D.C.C.

Mother Elisa Magni was born on 6 January 1904, the Feast of the Epiphany, at Vimercate, Milan (Italy) in a family rich with Christian faith from which three religious vocations sprang for the Church, two of them for the Canossian Institute.

In 1923 before her 20 birthday, Mother Elisa joined the novitiate in her own town: Vimercate. Three years later she pronounced her vows and left Italy for her mission land: Hong Kong.

During her 66 years of religious and missionary life, from the moment she set foot in Hong Kong to the time when she retired in 1988. Mother Elisa was lovingly devoted in a variety of duties.

The kitchen, the linen room, the school tuck shop, were the places where she lived “charity in humility”. Countless were the people she encountered in her humble services in schools and communities. To each and everyone she witnessed her deep love for God and her sincere concern for people.

Mother Elisa worked tirelessly serving students, teachers and advising the janitor staff until well beyond the age of “retirement”. When the time came for her to withdraw from her service in schools and communities, Mother Elisa remained serene and loving always.

Her silence, gentleness and prayer radiated her inner life and contributed greatly to building up the community spirit.

It was beautiful to see her slowly walking to the Chapel where she spent long hours of communion with her Lord.

Because of serious illness Mother Elisa spent a full month at Canossa Hospital before her death. Even here she continued to be grateful and patient offering her suffering to the Lord for many good intentions.

On 13 January 1992 she returned peacefully to the Lord. She died as she had lived - apparently a “common” death yet in the eyes of the Lord a “precious” one because her life, like Jesus’s life at Nazareth, had been made precious by prayer, service and love.
