The Prison Angel: Mother Antonia's Journey from Beverly Hills to a Life of Service in a Mexican Jail

At the age of fifty, Mary Clarke left her comfortable life in suburban Los Angeles to follow a spiritual calling to care for the prisoners in one of Mexico's most notorious jails.

Donning a nun's habit, she became Mother Antonia, renowned as "the prison angel," and has now organized a new community of sisters, the Servants of the Eleventh Hour, widows and divorced women seeking new meaning in their lives.
