Convalescence in Limuru Archbishop Riberi Apostolic Delegate to Africa In a letter of introduction for Edel to his 33 Bishops, dated 6/25/37, Archbishop Riberi writes of the Legion:
I like to think that it is the nearest approach to the ideal of Catholic Action as fostered by the Holy Father. . . .Hence,
my recommendation is an earnest one. 1937/1938 Highlights A Curia is established in Nairobi The handbook is being translated into Kiswahili and Kikuyu A Curia is established in Zanzibar

Archbishop Leen asked Edel to come to his diocese. She spent the summer there and left him with 30 praesidia and a curia. Archbishop Leen wrote to Dublin: Your thanking me for having welcomed your envoy seems to me like offering somebody 1,000 and
thanking him for accepting the present. All the gratitude should be on our side. I am ever so happy to see the Legion started here. Miss Quinn has succeeded in putting it on a solid foundation. She has the gift of quiet and effective organization. Miss Quinn is about to leave for Africa; her
courage is unabated. Nyasaland Edel initially started 7 praesidia including a seminary praesidium The tessera is translated into Chinanja Soon a curia was formed with 8 senior and 2 junior praesidia
Later, two curia and a leper praesidium Death? A rumor of Edels death spread through the area Masses were said for the repose of her soul Dublin received letters of condolence
Several priests wrote me since, congratulating me on the Resurrection. Edel wrote: Third Bout with Illness
In January 1941, Edel came down with dysentery and malaria. Although she was very weak, she travelled to Shir to establish a curia.
Her weight dropped to 75 pounds. Ruby Roberts Dublin sent a telegram to Ruby Roberts, envoy to South Africa
Ruby took Edel to Johannesburg Edel was admitted to a government-run sanatorium named Springkell for tuberculosis treatment
Umlamli Blessed Louis Marie de Montfort On page 1 of the March 1942 issue of Maria Legionis, we read: This moment, when the Canonization of Blessed Grignion de Montfort has reached final
stages, is opportune for asking that every Legionary will make a Novena to him for the vital intention that Edel Quinn, our Envoy to Central Africa, be given sufficient health to enable her to resume her mission....We are sure that if Legionaries unite at this
notable juncture to ask the Blessed Grignion de Montfort for this favour so near to their hearts, and so necessary for the Legion and for Africa, he will secure it for them. Result
Maria Legionis, December 1942: STOP PRESS A little while ago we heard that Edel Quinn had uprisen from bed and was setting off for her former envoy district in Central Africa....We are led to wonder if we are not looking on at that response to prayer for which we have been hoping.
Back in Nairobi A missionary priest wrote to Dublin: Miss Edel Quinn, the Legion Envoy to Central Africa, is back with us again. Last we heard of her she was near deaths door down South,
and then she comes by plane, as lively and full of beans as ever. Extension work has gone off with a bang since her arrival. All are glad to have her here again. . . The Acies in Nairobi was attended by 15
spiritual directors and 350 active legionaries Bishop Heffernan presided Sermons were preached in Kiswahili and English
A new army praesidium was formed. (This was the last photo sent by Edel Quinn to Concilium.) Fourth Bout with Illness Edel came down with malaria again in February
Bishop Heffernan arranged for Edel to be able to live inside the enclosure of the Carmelite community Continued Work Letters
Visits to curiae and praesidia Comitium in Nairobi Curiae in Kilimanjaro Curia and Comitium in Nyeri First one-day retreat for male legionaries
Final Bout with Illness Edel formed a Curia in Kisumu She was too weak to establish the one in Kakamega She asked Sr.
Dickson, president of the Nairobi Comitium to take her place there Death of a Heroine In April 1944 Edel returned to Nairobi
more dead than alive, hardly able to walk. She was confined to the summer house in the garden. It was here that she was found unconscious on the evening of May
12, 1944. Maria Legionis: July, 1944 She received the last Sacraments there in the garden now conscious of everything. She was taken in to the Convent. She sank to rest in the pillows of her bed. She called on the Holy Name of Jesus three
times, and then that of Mary three times also. O the valiant missionaries that have cried out those words from the depths of African forests and marshes! . . . . . . They must have answered her call as the soldiers of many an earthly army have gathered to their dying comrade. The
dying legionary then turned on her side it is the posture that for some strange reason the countless thousands of early martyred virgins made before death. She called once again the name of the Lover of us all and then her spirit went forth to meet Him.
A Dream Realized Edel was laid out in the habit of the Sisters of the Precious Blood. Thus her dream of a religious vocation was symbolically realized
in death. Maria Legionis: July, 1944 Miss Quinns death was a landmark in the conquest of Africa to Christianity. Her funeral, which was a triumph, gave proof of this. An immense concourse of people many of them her own
children legionaries assisted at it with twenty priests and the Bishop of the Vicariate, Dr. Heffernan . . . . . . She was laid to rest in the mission cemetery ordinarily reserved to priests and religious. . . . The gift of the Legion to its beloved Africa the
original flesh of a first and lay apostle to be the seed of unending grace and glory in that great continent. Her Legacy Edel Quinns legacy was not only to the Church of Africa, it was to the Church in China as well. Four years after her death, a Columban
priest by the name of Fr. Aedan McGrath was commisioned by Archbishop Riberi to accomplish in China what Edel Quinn had accomplished in East Africa. Well Known to Legionaries . . . . . . and to the World
A Legion Saint Edels Cause for Canonization was begun in 1963 She was declared Venerable on December 31st, 1994 by Pope John Paul II
Her Shrine Edels Words of Life continue to inspire legionaries Mary in me will love her Son. I could assist at Mass the whole day long. With Mary, I must be a channel of grace to
every soul or rather, Mary through me. Our Mothers most precious gift to her children is the Cross. It is the will, the will, the will that matters. For me the Legion comes before everything.
