Mary Ellen Barrett

Mother Miriam of the Lamb of God was born and raised in a Jewish home as Rosalind Moss. In her adult years, Mother Miriam embraced Jesus as the Messiah of the Jewish people. Her conversion took her from a successful business career to full-time Evangelical Protestant ministry, earning a Master’s degree from Talbot Theological Seminary. A series of events in the summer of 1990 set her on a compelling course to the Catholic Church which she entered at Easter of 1995.

Not long after entering the Church, “Rosalind” became a full-time staff apologist for Catholic Answers traveling the world, speaking and teaching through conferences, parish missions, women’s and family retreats and all forms of media, including St. Joseph’s Radio, EWTN, Catholic Answers Live and Immaculate Heart Radio.

Having been strangely affected as a young Jewish girl in New York by the shortening of nuns’ habits, Mother Miriam’s dream of returning the hemline to the floor and the habit to the world was realized when, in 2008, at the invitation of Archbishop (now Cardinal) Raymond Burke, the Daughters of Mary, Mother of Israel’s Hope was founded. As a contemplative-active Benedictine community of religious sisters, their primary apostolate of helping to restore God’s design for the family is bringing hope to many in the midst of a world turned from God.

Her daily podcast – Mother Miriam Live! – is now live-streamed Monday through Friday through The Station of the Cross Catholic Radio and Life Site News.
