Martha Ainsworth: Episcopal solitary

Article by Paul O’Donnell in New York Magazine titled “Hermit of the Heart,” with subtitle: “With no convent but the city itself, one woman finds a prayerful solitude as a contemplative order of one.” About Martha Ainsworth’s attempt to define a religious vocation as a solitary approved canonically by the local Episcopal bishop. Interesting example of being a hermit in the crowd.
