Whoever serves Me, the Father will honour. (John 12:23-26)

Margaret Sinclair: The Untold Story

by White Lyon Films




A Humble Violet in the Garden of God
Sister Mary Francis of the Five Wounds
(the Venerable Margaret Sinclair)

Sister Mary Francis of the Five Wounds (the Venerable Margaret Sinclair) is a humble little violet in the Garden of God.

The Garden of the Church is replete with such a variety, profusion and beauty of flowers, so varied, so manifold, a countless number of saintly souls, who for either a brief, short hour, or for a long desert trek, gave their beauty, their fragrance of virtue, their being to Jesus Christ their Saviour for the Salvation of souls.

Margaret is deserved of the title, a humble violet of God, because she lived a life, for the most part hidden from the world, humbly serving her Poor Clare Community as an extern sister, living out her vows of poverty, chastity and obedience.

The violet is a humble little flower, it is described as humble because it grows close to the ground, its small blooms are almost insignificant, blending into the foliage and dead leaves upon the forest floor.

The violet blooms among the dead leaves and humus, long before the trees come into leaf, the violet is a prelude to Spring ... a sign of hope.

It is a flower that can all too easily be overlooked and trodden upon, it nestles down within the leaves, favours the damp green moss, and it prays its hidden prayer of Praise ... How many violets upon the forest floor, how many hidden souls in the cloister are ever seen by anyone but the eyes of God ? And yet they form a beautiful bouquet of praise for their Maker.

Sister Mary Francis of the Five wounds made her religious vows in the month of February, the month wherein the violet blooms.

Brought up in the slums of Edinburgh, amidst so much that resembled the decaying life that inhabits the Forest floor, Margaret offered herself to Jesus, in simplicity and humility, she bloomed through her acceptance of suffering and the will of God.

The flower of the violet is possessed of five petals, and thus recalls the Wounds of Jesus, it wears its purple gown of mourning, but exudes a sweet perfume.

One ancient tale states that violets were in fact white, until Mary, the Mother of the Lord turned from watching Christ upon the Cross, at which moment all the flowers turned purple to echo her mourning-- one reason why purple remains the colour of mourning.

In Christian symbolism the violet means humility and constancy, and particularly in medieval art, Christ's humility.

The violet also possess healing qualities and has long been used in folk medicine, and who can know, understand, begin to perceive, the healing that Sister Mary Francis's life has brought to so many souls?

We would invite you to enter more deeply into the life of the Venerable Margaret Sinclair by reading and reflecting upon the material on this site, much of its deeper value and beauty is hidden; you will need to gaze long and pray-fully to really appreciate much of its beauty.
Gaze into the life of this beautiful soul, this humble violet of God's garden and ask her to reveal to you the beauty, the wonder of true humility.

After her death, the sweet smell of violets pervaded the air that surrounded Margaret in her coffin ... this little plant of Saint Francis and Saint Clare had bloomed oh, so briefly! ... and yet the odor of her sanctity is still borne on the wind, her seeds are still scattered upon the world to come to fruition in others, that they too may grow ... in the beauty of holiness, upwards and outwards from the off-scouring of this world into the unquenchable Light!

A Poor Clare Colettine Nun





"I Humbly Beg ..."


Sister Mary Francis of the Five Wounds (Margaret Sinclair) would have been accustomed within the Poor Clare Cloister, when requesting the use of something, or needing a specific permission to say to Mother Abbess, or another sister ... "I humbly beg ..."

'Could I humbly beg to ask Sister M some soap'?

'Dear Sister, could I humbly beg you to help me get that box off the shelf'?

A request is always, courteously, preceded by, "could I humbly beg ..."

Likewise as a sister who' served outside the monastery', that is a sister designated to go out and quest for food and alms for the community, on approaching others, Sister Mary Francis would have said, "Could I humbly beg if you have any unwanted food, or damaged goods for the Community of Poor Clare's that you would be able to give for the love of God?"

A Poor Clare sister is ever mindful that she lives and exists on the Providence of God, that everything is a gift. She is aware that she is always a beggar before God, reaching out her hands in expectation that God will provide, both for all temporal needs and for all the needs of her soul, and those of others. This attitude creates a wonderful, blessed dependence upon God.

We have nothing, we come into this world with nothing and we will leave it with the love carried in our hearts alone...

Saint Francis and Saint Clare of all the brothers and sisters loved and reverenced those who went out upon the quest, as beggars, for they epitomised what Francis and Clare truly believed the Friars Minor and the poor sisters should be, joyful beggars before the Lord.

'I humbly beg ... when approaching another's also shows a respect for the other, and preserves charity ...

The Venerable Margaret Sinclair must of asked this a thousand times over ...

Love and courtesy go hand in hand ...

Place yourself in the presence of the Lord, cup your two hands together, as a beggars bowl and ask the Lord to fill you ...

He knows your needs, and He will provide ....
