Sister Wendy Beckett

By Marguerite Cook

Nun and Art Historian
February 25, 1930 – December 26, 2017

On the feast of St. Stephen, a much loved Catholic Nun died. Sister Wendy Beckett became an art critic and TV presenter during the 1990s. Sister Wendy wrote numerous books, and Pope John Paul II commended her for giving a positive image to the church. Sister Wendy’s obituary in The Times said St.Thomas à Becket; the 12C saint and martyr was a distant ancestor of this popular nun.
