Sr. Brenner

One of our heroes, Sister Antonia Brenner raised eight children before becoming a nun and moving into a Tijuana prison to minister to the inmates. She told the men as they arrived, “Don’t be afraid. Christ was a prisoner just like you. He knows what it’s like to be arrested and interrogated and sent away. He knows what it’s like to be hated and mocked and humiliated. He hasn’t abandoned you. In all of the Scripture, he doesn’t speak a word against you.” She lived 30 years in a cell before passing away at the age of 86.
