Lynette Katherine Hoppe's life and death touched hundreds, if not thousands of lives as she served as a missionary in Albania, tragically succumbing to cancer in 2006. In Lynette's Hope: The Witness of Lynette Katherine Hoppe's Life and Death, close family friend and fellow OCMC missionary Fr. Luke Veronis retells the story of her life, and then lets her writing speak for itself. In poignant, honest prose, Lynette's diaries, newsletters, and website chronicled her struggles in the "valley of the shadow" as she faced impending death. In the midst of such heartache -- a young missionary wife and mother ill and dying -- how did she live? How did she die? The answers to those questions will move readers to agree with those who witnessed her passing, that truly hers was a "beautiful death."
From the Introduction "Lynette's life and writings offer a significant witness to all those who face sickness and troubles. I hope that especially the youth, whom Lynette loved and with whom she toiled so much, will find inspiration in this modern-day example.” —From the Introduction by Archbishop Anastasios
Praise for Lynette’s Hope:
Lynette Hoppe is an inspiring example of missionary service in our day and age. It is truly fitting that this book has been written in her honor.
