This is the amazing story of Sister Pascalina Lehnert (1894-1983) who was the personal confidant and secretary to Pope Pius XII for 40 years, when he was the Papal Nuncio in Germany, and then for his whole Pontificate. The Pope had great confidence in her wisdom, energy and loyalty, and she became known as “the most powerful woman in the history of the Vatican.”
In 1918, the young nun Pascalina was sent to Munich to be the housekeeper of the new Papal Nuncio, Eugenio Pacelli. Though they seemed to have little in common, Pacelli became impressed by Pascalina’s directness, zeal and alertness. She remained at Pacelli’s (Pius XII) side until his death in 1958, as his valued adviser and friend – God’s mighty servant to the end.
