Janet Mary Riley as she appeared in the Wolf yearbook when she was the Law Librarian at Loyola University New Orleans. 

“We take vows of poverty, chastity, and obedience, but we don’t live like nuns. We don’t live in community; we don’t have a common apostolate. It’s an important part of my life.”
