Congratulations to Sr Sue Phillips FMM

The Holy Irritant joins the world wide community of the Franciscan Missionaries of Mary in celebrating the election of Sr Sue Phillips as Superior General.

The FMMs (Catholics love acronyms and have the best collection among their religious communities) are a dynamic and heroic groups of women who have witnessed to the power of the feminine face of the divine in the struggle for justice and education.

Sue is the first Australian to lead the community in this role and brings great gifts and experience to the position. It also means that I may get a free bed in the Eternal City as the job is based in Rome at Franciscan Missionaries of Mary - Generalate Via Giusti, 12; 00 185 Roma, Italy.
